Description

A stunningly presented paperback edition of the 2020 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal winner. Twenty-five illustrated short stories exploring the relationship between humans and animals, from award-winning visual storyteller Shaun Tan.Where can we live if not in each other’s shadow?World-renowned artist Shaun Tan applies his extraordinary talent to a reflection on the nature of humans and animals, and our urban co-existence. From animals as disparate as crocodiles, tigers, bees and whales, this is a dark and surreal exploration of the perennial love we feel and destruction we inflict – and shows how animals, whether domestic, feral or really wild, can save us, and how we are entwined, for better or for worse. Tales from the Inner City is a truly masterly work, bearing all of Shaun Tan’s trademark wit and poignancy in both its prose and exquisite illustrations.
