Book DetailsISBN: 9780734410672
Shaun Tan's picture books take us into strange and beautiful worlds in which familiar places (back alleys, suburban streets and the basements of houses) become landscapes of fantasy and sometimes of menace. This is an innocent world in which little people come face to face with big questions about life and history. Questions about who were are in the midst of all the clamour. Shaun's titles include the The Red Tree, Tales from Outer Suburbia, and The Arrival, his acclaimed graphic novel about a migrant who leaves his home country for a better life. A charming animated version of his story The Lost Thing earned him an Oscar. Last year Shaun took out the prestigious Swedish prize for children's literature, the Astrid Lindgren Award. His latest picture book is called Rules of Summer and it's the story of two young boys whose friendship is tested by many challenging situations.
