Featuring stunning new covers, Shaun Tan's exquisite illustrated short story collections, Tales from Outer Suburbia and Tales from the Inner City, beautifully packaged in a slipcase edition. Perfect for Shaun Tan fans of all ages.

Collected together for the first time, forty illustrated tales of urban and suburban wonder, fear, humour and hope by the acclaimed creator of The Arrival, The Lost Thing and The Singing Bones.

Tales from Outer Suburbia paints a landscape of complex beauty and disquiet, where the unspoken feelings of ordinary people take physical form as strange animals, machines and the most unlikely of house guests. Winner of the CBCA Book of the Year Award for Older Readers.

Tales from the Inner City examines our troubled relationship with fellow animals, and the deep sense of love, crisis and longing that tolls beneath the traffic of our urban dreams. Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal.
