Combining humour and surreal fantasy, Shaun Tan pictures a summer in the lives of two boys.

Each spread tells of an event and the lesson learned. By turns, these events become darker and more sinister as the boys push their games further and further.

Other titles by Astrid Lindgren and Academy Award winner, Shaun Tan include: The Red Tree, The Lost Thing, Tales from Outer Suburbia and the acclaimed wordless novel The Arrival

Shaun has also worked as a theatre designer, a concept artist for Pixar and Blue Sky Studios, and won an Academy Award for the short film adaptation of The Lost Thing.
