it was amazing

Recommended for: all lover of beauty and the quirky

Wonderful. Every detail in the book is just so lovely; it took me a few moments to realize the cute postage stamps on page one were actually the content of the stories. And the postage value the page number you find the story on. Has anyone else noticed that the delicate drawings in the book cover, or the actual book skin -whatever you call it - are not the same in the front and back of the book? And has anyone noticed it is not due back at the library till 2025 or something? So here is our excuse why we hogged it for far too long. We should own it, really. I imagine Shaun Tan to be a very adorable person. I hope lots of people have bought the book so he can make a decent income from his art!
