A moving and inspiring story about how we remember the past from two of Australia's most acclaimed picture book creators, Gary Crew and Shaun Tan.


When the soldiers return in 1918, a memorial tree is planted ... 'Lest We Forget'. But generations later, what do those who pause in the shadows of the tree's immense branches remember?


Gary Crew is well known for his rich, multi-layered and intensely suspenseful bestselling novels for young adults. Four times the winner of the CBC Book of the Year Award, as well as other numerous awards, Gary was a high school English teacher for eighteen years, before turning to university lecturing and full-time writing. He lives in Queensland.


Shaun Tan grew up in Perth and graduated from the University of Western Australia with joint honours in Fine Arts and English Literature. He began drawing and painting images for science fiction and horror stories in small-press magazines as a teenager, and has since become best known for illustrated books that deal with social, political and historical subjects through surreal, dream-like imagery. His works include THE RED TREE, THE LOST THING, RULES OF SUMMER and the acclaimed wordless novel THE ARRIVAL. All have been widely translated throughout Europe, Asia and South America, and are enjoyed by readers of all ages.
