Year 4 Literacy Class Review: The Lost Thing

The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan, published 2000, Lothian Books, $28.99

A strange creature is lost in a giant city, a young man named Shaun finds the thing and must return it to its home. The author says, “ It is a tale for people that have more important things to do”. I like the way Shaun uses gloomy pictures with a splash of red colour. My favorite is after Shaun finds a button and presses it.

There is an amazing picture with detail of some amazing creatures and places from Shaun’s imagination.

I would recommend this to anyone 9 to 11.
