Rules of Summer, Shaun Tan
The much anticipated new book from Australia's most acclaimed picture-book creator.
Shaun Tan's books have won world acclaim, the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, as well as an Academy Award for the animated short film adaptation of his book THE LOST THING.
Tan's new book, RULES OF SUMMER, is a deceptively simple story about two boys, one older and one younger, and the kind of rules that might govern any relationship between close friends or siblings. Rules that are often so strange or arbitrary, they seem impossible to understand from the outside. Yet through each exquisite illustration of this nearly wordless narrative, we can enjoy wandering around an emotional landscape that is oddly familiar to us all.
