Tales from outer suburbia

Author: Shaun Tan Publication Date: 2008 Who'll want to read it? Anyone What's it all about? This is a book of short stories incorporating beautiful and extremely detailed illustrations. It is a book that reminds you of all those fantastic theories and questions you had when you were a child like "Does the world end at the edge of the last map in the street directory?" or "What would happen if a whale landed in your front yard?". There a stories about secret gardens, stick men, exhange students, saving turtles and missiles.
Shaun Tan has done an amazing job and if you aren't already in love with his work, I am sure you will swoon with pleasure at his latest creation. Publisher: Allen & Unwin
