    I am having a moment of going through my collected works of Australian illustrator Shaun Tan So far this year I have worked my way through what I consider his masterpiece The Arrival and his recent The Singing Bones WhileThe Lost Thingis probably not my favourite of his works, it is still an outstanding picture book There is actually very little to read but you can spend ages pouring over the illustrations including the wonderful background collages of industrial drawings, algebraic equations a [...]

    Well, actually I finished watching it As I couldn t find the soft copy anywhere, I just watched the short film that Shaun Tan made from this book and yes, I loved it That was obvious though His books never fail to amaze me 3

    E allora Un ragazzo occhialuto e spettinato nota una strana creatura sulla spiaggia Una cosa strana, una specie di teiera con i tentacoli Sembra spaesata, o forse solamente abbandonata E si lascia avvicinare senza ti dal ragazzo che decide di cercarne il proprietario.I due iniziano quindi a girare per la citt in silenzio alla ricerca del Posto per la Cosa smarrita che, apparentemente, nessuno vuole.In questo peregrinare notiamo tante cose strane che riusciremmo a vedere tranquillamente se solo n [...]

    Well, I ve loved the other books I ve read by this author illustrator, and he recently won an Oscar for a film adaptation of this book an Academy Award winning animation short I ve not seen, yet so I was sufficiently curious to get and read a copy of the book And, yes, I want to see the film I can see it being an excellent short.It s probably not fair that I compare all Tan s books with the brilliant The Arrival or even The Red Tree those books are so amazing This one is terrific too Melancholy [...]

    I loved this book The illustrations are a weird combination of dark depressing and funny ironic It is a dark, mechanical world Very dystopian, but the characters do normal and very dorky things that make it funny The text by itself would seem ordinary, which is part of the magic of this book, because it fools the reader into thinking they will see something familiar in the illustration Of course there is nothing boring or cliche about the illustrations In fact, it is completely unpredictable the [...]

    I m only giving it 4 stars because it wasn t quite as magical as The Red Tree The main character finds a Lost Thing on the beach It s huge and red and looks kind of like a giant coffee pot with tentacle y feet No one wants it where does it belong And who is responsible now that it has been Found This is another engrossing picture book for older readers, with endless details to be appreciated in the collage illustrations, from bits of text No office desk is complete without a good spool of 20mm i [...]

    I read this straight through in the Oxford Street Bookshop took less than five minutes , and only did the you re not crying in the shop thing once, which is good going for a Shaun Tan.Then I went and bought it, and spent a total of an hour pouring over all the hundreds of tiny details on the train So beautiful, and utterly wrenching He writes of kids magic all the things you see before the grown up world trains you out of seeing what s really there.

    PERSONAL RESPONSEI like this book very much because of the magic that it has I also loved the illustrations that I believe were made by the author Shaun Tan OTThe Lost Thing is a story about Shaun, a young guy that likes to collect bottle tops One day Shaun was walking by the beach looking for bottle tops for his bottle tops collection when he saw a strange creature The creature looked like a mix of a big red boiler with crab claws and tentacles It seemed like everyone was too busy to pay attent [...]

    It s strange that something so large can be missed unseen by so many people, even the main character s parents when it clearly takes up half the living room The fact the conversation shifts so quickly and easily suggests that life is too fast paced to enjoy or too full of flashy attention grabbing objects It points to the acceptance of routine without stopping to appreciate life itself I liked the image of the arrow he was following which was juxtaposed against the usual arrows which were straig [...]

    he sounds so Singaporean KUDOS for a Chinese in Oz Beautifully illustrated, this book is wonderful.A short history from shauntan Shaun Tan was born in 1974 and grew up in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia In school he became known as the good drawer which partly compensated for always being the shortest kid in every class He graduated from the University of WA in 1995 with joint honours in Fine Arts and English Literature, and currently works full time as a freelance artist and au [...]

    The humor in this book both written and visual make it arguably my favourite picture book of all time The fact that the much of the art including the cover playfully references some of my favourite artists doesn t hurt, either.I m adding to this review to mention that the animated short film of The Lost Thing many years in the making has just this year 2011 made the shortlist for the academy awards And so it should The story s comments on isolation, community, society and connectedness are, if a [...]

    Some things are like that, he said,they are just plain lost .I still think about that lost thing from time to time.Specially when I see something out of the corner of my eye which doesn t quite fit.You know, something with a weird, sad sort of look.I see that kind of thing less and less these days.Maybe there aren t many lost things around any .Or maybeOr maybe I just stopped noticing.Too busy doing other stuff I guess

    Joshua Denton
    I feel this book could really help children with writing description in their own stories A really nice story about accepting and helping people and their diffferences kind of like a sweeter version of Armin Greder s The Island.

    Intriguing story But, the art really makes the book I just adore Shaun Tan

    Initially at first glance the story book was complexed to unfold as far as the illustrations were concerned After analysing the picture book and reading the background information provided, we drew out key themes that became prominent One of the themes that became obvious was industrialism this was portrayed clearly by the dulled, grey colours representing the lack of imagination There was also an element of repetition and commonality within the pictures, these showed the habitual structured so [...]
