    I love Shaun’s work! And I love that he, the man, really does see the world in a beautiful way.

    I loved “The Lost Thing” and bought the DVD and book set that came out back in 2010, wonderful stuff! “The Red Tree” is a favourite too & “The Arrival”, “Eric”… oh all of them! He is turning into an Australian national treasure like Michael Leunig

    This is one of the many readons I love you Mo…it is in the gift of sharing. I am thinking of buying this one for Zebedee…looks like a beauty. Will have to check out the others. You know me; not really a book person but Zebedee is at 5 years of age and I feel he will love it.

    If I read more, maybe I would know how to spell….that is supposed to read ‘reasons’.

    Oooh, I saw this when I was going through the pile of latest possible acquisitions at the primary school I’ve been working at. Needless to say, I put it in the ‘purchase’ pile without even thinking about it! And, dammit, I meant to back and have a nice, good long look at it, and forgot, and last Friday was my last day! We also took the girls to see the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre performance of ‘Tales from Outer Suburbia’ recently, wonderful stuff! They did ‘The Arrival’ as well, which we saw last year.

    Oh, this looks wonderful… love the cat-eared shadow 🙂

    Oh! Shaun Tan… A friend loaned me The Arrival and I poured over every single page. Enchanting. Hope you are getting rain by now.
