This is an exquisite small gift book. This is the story of Eric, an exchange student who comes to visit, but as always with Shaun Tan’s stories, it is so much more than that. To me it is his most poignant volume, perhaps because of its size. truly a pocket-book to treasure. The Illustrated Cupboard show room in London has one of his illustrations from this book for sale – Eric’s Garden at £350 – certainly more than I should ever spend – but any donations towards this would be wonderful!
