It's no secret I am a fan of Shaun Tan's artwork in THE ARRIVAL and TALES FROM OUTER SUBURBIA, so when I found out that Scholastic was coming out with an omnibus editions of three of his early works, I knew I had to have it.
All three included works are wonderfully bizzare. THE LOST THING, for which Shaun Tan just won an animation Oscar (I've met an Oscar winner!), was my favorite. I liked the simple language of the narrator and his concern for the lost thing. It's very touching! I also really enjoyed the haunting quality of THE RED TREE and the social awareness of THE RABBITS.
Here's a spread:
Check out Shaun Tan's website. Watch the trailer for THE LOST THING.
