Shaun Tan (Australia) presents his children's books "Tales from Outer Suburbia" and "The Lost Thing"
With words light as a feather, but many-layered at the same time and with a great earnestness in terms of themes, the Australian's short stories let us in on the many secrets of everyday life that take place behind the scenes of reality. His extraordinary characters and exceedingly poetic stories inhabit a world between reality and fantasy. They show us things that appear normal only at first glance and connections between events that previously seemed coincidental.
