Lost and Found

By Shaun Tan   

Scholastic Inc | ISBN 9780545229241 Hardcover
128 Pages | 8.82" x 11.56" | Ages 10 & Up

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 proven 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.
