    This little book is a children s book for adults and it is a masterpiece It consists of short stories written and illustrated by Shaun Tan who is a man with the wildest imagination ever.My favourite of the stories tells the tale of two boys who argue over what happens when you reach the end of the street directory Have you ever looked at that last page and wondered where the roads go next The boys find out and there is a brilliant illustration of when they do.I also loved Alert but not Alarmed where people are required to keep missiles in their gardens, j...

    4.5 The house at number seventeen was only ever mentioned with lowered voices by the neighbours They knew well the frequent sounds of shouting, slamming doors and crashing objects But one sultry summer night, something else happened, something far interesting the appearance of a large marine animal on the front lawn Where do you go from here in a story titled Undertow Australian author artist Shaun Tan has THE most interesting imagination The stories are short and thought provoking in the extreme They are the sort of topics that are going to leave people with differing opinions and the urge to express them.This is the delightful Table of Contents, which I was admiring as artwork before I realised what it really was The stamp values are page numbers.Illustration of contents pageI have a few favourites No Other Country No other country is worse than this one is about a family suffering extreme summer heat, so hot that the plastic Christmas tree in the attic has melted itself to the rafters While trying to pry it loose, one of the kids puts a foot through the ceiling, but it doesn t protrude into the room below They discover another garden with cool breezes, what they call the inner courtyard, where the seasons are reversed and the trees and walls and frescoes ar...

    What would it be like to have a children s story book without fairies, princesses and princes, dungeons and dragons and the usual haberdasheries known as the ingredients of a children s book What if there was a book of stories set in the urban concrete jungle about everyday things that made normal life look magical With beautiful illustrations, and wordplay, Shaun Tan did just that.In Tales from Outer Suburbia the stories revolve around the tiny elements of our daily lives that we barely give any credit but play a significant role nevertheless Stories about loss, about kindness and empathy and the struggles of marriage Adult themes written for children, to allow their inquisitive minds to face the reality of our existences.Whether or not Shaun Tan has been successful in portraying the story of modern urban life to children is up to the readers and their parents to decide No matter what, one has to admit that Tan s work does...

    This is truly spectaculara collection of wildly imaginative very short stories accompanied by artwork that clearly demonstrates Shaun Tan s remarkable artistic range He employs many different techniques and seems to use every available space inside the covers to spread his magic in a way that is fresh and fun From the table of contents to the acknowledgements to the oodles of doodles on the inside covers, this is something tomarvel Shelved as YA Graphic, this is better than that It requires its own label And though the stories are a bit offbeat and the language is beautifully rich, I will read this with my children I know they will notice and appreciate pieces that I have missed or misunderstood I can t wait to see this through their eyes.My favorite story begins my brother and I could easily spend hours arguing about the correct lyrics to a TV jingle, the impossibility of firing a gun in outer space, where cashew nuts come from, or whether we really did see a saltwater croco...

    On the face of it, I m an inadequate reviewer for Shaun Tan When you review a book for kids, what do you do You take that little book, you pick apart its layers if you re lucky enough to find any , then you box up each and every one of those layers, a paragraph apiece, and voila Instant review Having a format to follow makes everything so simple It s as if you re simply filling in the blanks on a Mad Libs sheet Pronoun has written an adjective book that will adverb verb you each and every time you verb it Shaun Tan messes everything up for me His books don t read like other books His text now that I ve seen it for the first time doesn t bloody read like the text of other people He s not just writing new kinds of stories, but reinventing the very nature of short story collections, personal histories, sketchbooks, suburban metaphors, and on and on they go Would you believe me if I told you that I ve tried several times to cut apart a couple layers of this book for boxing up purposes, only to find myself staring for several minutes at some small...

    This is a different story for Shaun Tan He has a lot of words in this one There are 15 short stories in this collection Each, a little vignette Shaun Tan sees the world differently and he has an artistic gift to share it with the world His stories always create a mood and encourage us to think about something a little differently or deeper It is an amazing gift he has I love the little story of Eric The little figure reminds me of another story about Eric I wonder if someone else took the character and made a story with him I can t put my finger on what the story was I love the last page of that story There is only one picture for Broken Toys and that was an interesting story Check it out Grandpa s Story was cool It s about what the wedding ritual used to be back when it was tough to get married What a brilliant idea the Other Country is What if there was a secret room in your home that ...
