Product Information

'This is the best picture book I have seen. Shaun Tan has created a masterpiece.' John Marsden 'Shaun Tan has a prodigious talent, and although still a young man, he is a leading picture book maker in Australia. The four picture books he has illustrated (the last two for which he was wholly responsible) bagged him seven major awards, and citations on seven shortlists including an Honorouable Mention in the Bologna Ragassi Award. All his work requires open-minded curiosity and patience, attitudes which are valuable to foster in children.' Jennifer Taylor, The School Librarian '...The artwork is a marvel of mixed media in painterly surrealist style, with the accompanying lines of the text slipping and sliding, shrinking or expanding like sighs...' Jane Doonan
