Book Review: Eric by Shaun Tan - Reviewed by Larissa (18 Jul 2011)
He wasn't at all what was expected; he came from a different place and did things differently. The spare room that had been redecorated just for him he didn't use. The questions he asked were not the questions expected, and they were not easily answered. He was quiet and kept mostly to himself.
But he was polite and friendly and he didn't mind when we had trouble pronouncing his name, simply telling us to just call him Eric. He was always happy to be taken out and shown the sights. He was always happy to left alone to study. At least I think he was happy. And when he left he left behind a wonderful surprise that is still treasured.
eric is a simple and compact story of friendship and acceptance. As they say good things come in small packages and this little book is full of good things. To open your home and your heart to others without judgement can bring beautiful surprises into your life. As can a little book called eric.
