Twenty-five illustrated short stories exploring the relationship between humans and animals.
Tales from the Inner City is a powerful reflection on the nature of existence and the urban relationship we have with animals within our human world. From the dog to the crocodile; from the tiger to the frog, world renowned artist Shaun Tan explores the perennial love and destruction we feel and inflict on our fellow creatures.
Through twenty-five exquisitely illustrated stories, he shows how animals can save us, and how we are entwined, for better or for worse. Each surreal story is illuminated by Shaun's astonishing paintings and bears all of his trademark wit and poignancy, as he shines a light on this most fundamental of relationships.
NOTE : Includes some gruesome scenes, including descriptions of death and illness, and the cutting open of a dead, pregnant shark. These are not explicit but may be too much for some readers.
NOTE: Greenaway Winner 2020
