    "I had heard very little about Shaun Tan when I came across this book. I gave it a shot thinking it would be something like the RL Stein style books my generation grew up with. I was pleasantly surprised and taken in by the story that left behind the cliche and silliness of a lot of young adult fiction and went to a deeper and more fearful place. I'm looking forward to my next Tan read."
