Tales from Outer Suburbia
by Shaun Tan
It is difficult to describe what Tales from Outer Suburbia is all about. The tales consist of random thoughts, strange journeys, and unusual countries. They are weird and slightly sinister, much like dreams that continue to haunt us many days later. All of these tales beg to be read more than once. I particularly liked The Water Buffalo, No Other Country, Eric, Distant Rain, Stick Figures, Make Your Own Pet and Alert, but not Alarmed.
