Publisher’s Description:
Millie Bird is a seven-year-old girl who always wears red wellington boots to match her red, curly hair. But one day, Millie’s mum leaves her alone beneath the Ginormous Women’s underwear rack in a department store, and doesn’t come back.

Agatha Pantha is an eighty-two-year-old woman who hasn’t left her home since her husband died. Instead, she fills the silence by yelling at passers-by, watching loud static on TV, and maintaining a strict daily schedule. Until the day Agatha spies a little girl across the street.

Karl the Touch Typist is eighty-seven years old and once typed love letters with his fingers on to his wife’s skin. He sits in a nursing home, knowing that somehow he must find a way for life to begin again. In a moment of clarity and joy, he escapes.

Together, Millie, Agatha and Karl set out to find Millie’s mum. Along the way, they will discover that the young can be wise, that old age is not the same as death, and that breaking the rules once in a while might just be the key to a happy life.
This book will make you laugh out loud.

It will also make you weep.

Lost & Found will warm your heart.
It might even restore your faith in humanity. 
Does that all sound like a very tall order for a book? Perhaps you think I’m exaggerating the adorable delight that is Lost & Found? I’m not. Go read it and see for yourself. 
The trailer captures the flavor of the book very well: 

My friend Monika, at A Lovely Bookshelf on the Wall, published a wonderful review about Lost & Found here. Check it out!

  1. I've seen one other review of this one, and your reaction and her reaction could not be any different. I was going to dismiss this one as cute but ultimately disappointing (the other opinion), but now you have me thinking this is something I need to read. Like I need any more of those….
