Nothing like a good children’s book to make the blues go away. Trust me when I say that. They are very comforting and help you also look at things differently and actually make you more empathetic than you normally are or would have been. At least that has been my experience.

Once again Oliver Jeffers came to my rescue with the book “Up and Down” and might I add that I was again taken in heavily by this one as well. Though this was a reread, it still seemed like I was reading it for the first time.

“Up and Down” is yet again about the boy and this time with his friend, the penguin. They spend all time together and are with each other, till one fine day things change. It is about the penguin that has wings and wants to fly and explore more than just spending time with the boy and how one turn of event makes the penguin and the boy see things differently.

I loved this book. It is about friendship and how easy it is to get back with friends. It is also about wanting to do what you always have thought and dreamed of.

    Loved your review of Oliver Jeffer’s books. Picture Books are so difficult to get right without coming across as preachy. These books sound delightful. Thanks Vivek for introducing me to this wonderful author’s books.
