This is the Shaun Tan book I originally wanted to read first, before Tales From Outer Suburbia. It was reviewed on coffeeandink's Dreamwidth - or at least two of the three stories within this omnibus edition were - and those (gorgeous utterly wonderful) reviews prompted my initial interest in Tan's works. On a whole, Lost and Found is a darkly rich world that straddles reality and fantasy with enviable ease. In "The Red Tree", a young girl struggles to find her place in a world that is alien to her; "The Lost Thing" follows a boy and his efforts to help a lost thing find its home; the last story of "The Rabbits" show what happens when an invading force of seemingly harmless rabbits turn a world upside-down.

Of course, these stories are not simplistic children's book stories; they have depth and they have layers. "The Red Tree" is arguably a story of depression in all its complicated and murky ways, the little girl trying to make sense of her own life while fighting against the tide of emotions that change day to day. It is probably my favorite of all three stories as it hit me the hardest emotionally. The second story, "The Lost Thing", can be seen as a commentary on people's proper 'places' in society and how someone can be lost but not alone.

Then there is "The Rabbits", and it is clearly a piece on colonialism through a sci-fi lens. Considering the story's setting (and the birth place of the author), the story seems to be offering up its own parallels to the colonialism of Australia through the rabbits - an animal which was introduced to the Australian continent as a species completely foreign to that habitat and ended up nearly dominating the landscape. In this story, the rabbits have come and taken everything - even the children - and in the end, it is unclear if anyone can be saved from the reality the rabbits have created. Like most Tan stories, it is open-ended; it is up to the individual reader to determine what happens to these two races at ends with each other.

Overall, Lost and Found is a must read for those craving picture books by definition that are definitely atypical of the medium. For further analysis/responses to Shaun Tan's works, I would recommended checking out his author tag on coffeeandink's Dreamwidth blog; coffeeandink's thinky thoughts and reviews about Tan (as well as pretty much everything else) are a treasure to read. After all, they were the reason I started reading Tan in the first place. ( )

How could one read this book and not be moved? ( )

I was thoroughly engaged with the three stories in this book. Out of The Red Tree, The Lost Thing, and The Rabbits which we'd already read separately, our favorite was The Red Tree.

Shaun Tan is an amazing illustrator and his artwork is so unique. Children love the illustrations and the stories require them to brainstorm. What are the stories about exactly? Readers can take on different views and conclusions.

I especially enjoyed the author's notes in the back which helped to understand the original meanings of the stories. It's surely helpful to have an adult, parent or teacher available to assist young readers. I highly recommend this book for schools and home libraries.

We're definitely adding this to our library. Looking forward to more by this author and illustrator.
