Shaun Tan's amazing storytelling

Coming in April from Scholastic is Shaun Tan's LOST & FOUND. Three stories, originally published in Australia (THE RED TREE, THE LOST THING are by Shaun Tan plus John Marsden's THE RABBITS) get a new look with original art from Tan. Words, while minimal, parallel the incredible beauty of the illustrations. It is impossible to describe each story without losing its beauty. Suffice to say, readers will find much to admire here: quirky stories populated by equally quirky characters, Tan's trademark illustrations that such readers into the setting of his imagined worlds, and page and book design that are as important as the words and pictures. Place your orders now. <32>
