A girl finds a bright spot in a dark world. A boy leads a strange, lost creature home. And a group of peaceful creatures cedes their home to cruel invaders. Shaun Tan, with his understated voice and brilliant draftsmanship, has proved that he has a unique imaginative window to our souls, and an unparalleled ability to share that opening with pictures and narratives that are as unexpected as they are deeply true.

Originally published in Australia, these three beloved and acclaimed tales were never widely available in the U.S. Now for the first time, The Red Tree, The Lost Thing, and the John Marsden classic The Rabbits are presented in their entirety with additional new artwork and author's notes. Together they tell a tale that will leave no reader unmoved, about how we lose and find what matters most to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathtaking artwork This is a fantastic book, and is guaranteed to please any age from elementary age child to adult. We bought this for our high school library and the kids are loving the artwork and the simple but thought-provoking stories. The other librarian and myself could not put it down. It is well worth purchasing.
