9780734400741: The Lost Thing: For Those Who Have More Important Things to Pay Attention to

A kid finds a lost 'thing' on the beach where he's scavenging for his bottle top collection. The thing is a large, freakish creature but no-one else really notices it – it's simply not a part of their familiar day-to-day reality. So the kid takes it upon himself to try to find where the lost thing belongs.

About the Author:

Shaun Tan ("A Day in the Life") grew up in Perth, Western Australia, and made up for the fact that he was the shortest kid in every class by being known as a "good drawer." Besides working full-time as an illustrator of his own stories, Shaun has worked as a designer in theater and film, and also directed the Academy Award winning short film The Lost Thing.

From AudioFile:

What exactly is "The Lost Thing"? There aren't any lost pet notices in the paper, and parents don't seem to take any notice. Friend Pete seems unimpressed, but the compassionate hero of this thought-provoking tale is determined to locate a home for the creature, elusive though it may be. The narration and production add to the mystery surrounding "The Lost Thing." Humphrey Bower is quiet and tentative as the story unfolds. His voice repeatedly trails off, highlighting the story's tone of bewilderment. The sound effects and upbeat music lend a science fiction flair. Listeners will ponder the story as they pore over Tan's detailed and mind-expanding illustrations. A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
