Lost and Found: Threeby Shaun Tan
Synopses & Reviews
A collection of three jaw-dropping stories: The Red Tree, The Lost Thing, and The Rabbits, by New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Shaun Tan.
A girl finds a bright spot in a dark world. A boy leads a strange, lost creature home. And a group of peaceful creatures loses their home to cruel invaders. Three stories, written and illustrated by Shaun Tan, about how we lose and find what matters most to us.
Never widely available in the U.S., these tales are presented in their entirety with new artwork and author's notes.
"There isn't really a bad time to win an Academy Award, but Shaun Tan's timing is impeccable. His animated short film, The Lost Thing, picked up an Oscar just as the book upon which it was based returns to print in this collection. The three stories within — The Red Tree, The Lost Thing, and The Rabbits — were previously published (separately) in Australia and made available in the U.S. by Simply Read Books (PW gave starred reviews to all three stories). This compilation also incorporates new background and notes on each from Tan (and, for The Rabbits, from John Marsden, the author of that story). With glowing critical receptions for The Arrival and Tales from Outer Suburbia, Tan's career had already been ascendant before his Oscar night success, and this offering should only further raise his profile.
