Shaun Tan's art style is accessible to both adults and children - the book is full of details which make it a 'read many times' book!

I bought this becasue I wanted a 'picture book' to share with my son, who is eight. This turned out to be more perfect than I could have hoped. Shaun Tan is nothing if not multitalented - the quirky stories, are surprising and entertaining, and complimented by his amazing illustrations. Production of the book is also great, so the very feel of the book is wonderful too. Highly recommended.
