Book Club: Shaun Tan Lost and Found
Hi! Welcome to THE STACKS Book Club where every month we all read the same book together. Here's how it works. I'll write the blog post here announcing this month's book, why I chose it, and a question that I am interested in. You participate by writing what you think in the Comments below. Anyone can join!
This month's book is: Lost and Found: Three by Shaun Tan.
Question to Discuss: How would you adapt these stories into film if you were in charge?
To get started, take a peek at the trailer for the film here. And read this review written by Scholastic booktalker, Melissa:
Do you sometimes feel sad or lonely for no good reason? Do you think that you live in a bizarrely wonderful world with something magic just waiting around every corner? Can big problems in the world make you feel scared and small?
Lost & Found is an impossible book to describe. There are three smaller books hiding in it: a story about a very sad and lonely girl, a story about a boy who finds a lost thing, and a story about rabbits who take over everything. Each of these stories, though, is so much more, surrounded by intricate and odd pictures that tell their own complicated stories. If you're the kind of reader who likes art, puzzles, mysteries, and pictures that tell a hundred thousand words, then you MUST read everything by Shaun Tan.
I agree. Shaun Tan's artwork knocks me out. This book is a little bizarre, and a little random sometimes, but A-MAZING! I'm really curious to hear what you think of it! Leave a Comment!
