Recommended. By Shaun Tan. The visionary Shaun Tan returns to show us five years of new and incredibly original stories, rich with feeling and strangely moving, "about the relationships between animals and human beings. By turns moving, shocking, hilarious, and surreal, Tan's stories place frogs in a corporate boardroom, bears in the legal system, horses on the highway, and more. Each tale is accompanied by Tan's luminous paintings, windows on a hidden world of truth and feeling beneath the surface of our everyday lives."

The visionary Shaun Tan returns to show us five years of new and incredibly original stories, rich with feeling and strangely moving, "about the relationships between animals and human beings. By turns moving, shocking, hilarious, and surreal, Tan's stories place frogs in a corporate boardroom, bears in the legal system, horses on the highway, and more. Each tale is accompanied by Tan's luminous paintings, windows on a hidden world of truth and feeling beneath the surface of our everyday lives."

And when the reader comes to the artwork, it’s like walking into an amazing room, and then throwing open a curtain to see a brilliant scene that makes you understand and appreciate everything you’ve encountered in a deeper way. His Arrival and Tales from Outer Suburbia were both named to the New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Books list.

If you enjoy the work of avante-garde artists such as Dave McKean, Bill Sienkiewicz, Doug Potter, and David Wiesner, you should know about Tan's superb work. He's from Austrailia, and he simply has a different and amazing way of looking at things.

For example, the book's opening line is "Crocodiles live on the eighty-seventh floor."
