Tales from Outer Suburbia by Shaun Tan

Welcome back to the quirky and charming imagination of the author/illustrator of the (rightfully)award-winning The Arrival. This collection of very short stories and inspired illustrations will go down easy and leave you thinking. From Eric,the unusual exchange student, to the annual celebration of the Nameless Holiday, Outer Suburbia will seem eerily similar to your neighborhood--turned inside out and viewed through a funhouse mirror. Recommended for grades 7 and up.
