This book is a bit of a difficult one for me to review. I felt deeply connected to many of the short stories within, some reminding me a lot of my own experiences. I loved the art and a lot of the subtle messages in it portraying to the reader. I think Shaun Tan did an absolutely fantastic job in writing and illustrating this book. Words cannot even begin to convey what I feel about this book.
I'll admit that some of the stories are a bit on the bizarre side, but I feel that only adds to the charm and whimsical nature of this book. I can't recommend this book enough! Especially if you are going through a rough time in your life, I do think you should give this book a shot. I don't even want to mention all the reasons why I love this book. I want you to discover it yourself. See the beauty for yourself. It will give you a sense of peace and clarity, I think, which is something I definitely needed. I love this book. It's amazing!
