About this Item

Signed first US edition of author's first collection of stories, fables and new (sub)urban myths told in both words and his uniquely fabulous illustrations. Tan's work is hard to describe in any condensed form - which will, in any case, fall far short of the actual reading experience. This copy is signed with gold ink and a red fingerprint flower. If it's too pricey, just do yourself a favor and buy a regular copy from anywhere you want and sit down and read it. Then go find his other books and do the same. Very special. Named one of the top 30 children's books of 2009 by Publshers Weekly. Bookseller Inventory # 1607030001

About this title


An exchange student who's really an alien, a secret room that becomes the perfect place for a quick escape, a typical tale of grandfatherly exaggeration that is actually even more bizarre than he says... These are the odd details of everyday life that grow and take on an incredible life of their own in tales and illustrations that Shaun Tan's many fans will love.
