This artist's book for children, commissioned by London's renowned Serpentine Gallery on the occasion of Chan's 2007 one-person exhibition there, will be equally delightful to smart, imaginative children and any parent with a even a passing interest in Western philosophy. With words, drawings and cheeky, smart footnotes (citing such diverse sources as Goethe, Nietzsche, Hegel and Google) by Chan, it tells the story of a young girl who is afraid of the night until her shadow shows her how the world can be transformed in the dark. Innovative and engaging--but not at all uptight--this sophisticated children's book introduces ideas about language, art and contemporary culture with a lighthearted touch that keeps you flipping through the pages again and more
