My daughter enjoyed the book. She read it a couple of times already.

I was looking for the picture book that inspired the animated short "The Lost Thing," and it is included in this collection of three stories. The first two stories are both written and illustrated by Shaun Tan, and the third is written by John Marsden and illustrated by Shaun Tan. Each of the stories is beautifully written and illustrated, in addition to introducing complex subject matter in an age appropriate manner. In particular, "The Rabbits," which deals with the subjugation of the Aboriginal people of Australia, does so in such a way that there will be questions, but it wouldn't terrorize a child. Overall, I would recommend this both to people buying picture books for children and people interested in the artwork and stories of the book as it is well worth it.

This is a lovely piece of visual and thinking art, with images full of little details to stir the imagination. Tan is a truly clever storyteller, and this makes a wonderful companion volume to "The Arrival."

I absolutely love Shaun Tan. Lost and Found is a brilliant collection of stories- heartbreaking, beautiful, and insightful. Additionally, the illustration of each story shows the careful planning and attention to detail that characterizes Tan's work, while at the same time being unique to the specific tale. I am so glad I was finally able to buy this!
