Tales from the Inner City

by Shaun Tan

One animal is featured in each of the 25 Tales from the Inner City, a Kate Greenaway medal-winning collection of pleasantly surreal and hauntingly philosophical short stories by Australian artist, illustrator and writer, Shaun Tan. Complemented by stunning and evocative artwork, Tan explores the troubled relationship between humans and animals. In deeply meaningful prose, he exposes the banality and pollutive effects of urban existence and suggests that nature — whilst fragile — is infinitely wiser and more resilient than humankind will ever be. This thought-provoking book will appeal to older children seeking to understand their place on this miraculous planet.
