A stunning paperback edition of The Arrival, one of the most critically acclaimed books of recent years.
Shaun began drawing and painting images for science fiction and horror stories in small-press magazines as a teenager, and has since become best known for illustrated books that deal with social, political and historical subjects through surreal, dream-like imagery. Books such as The Rabbits, The Red Tree, The Lost Thing and The Arrival have been widely translated throughout Europe, Asia and South America, and enjoyed by readers of all ages. Shaun has also worked as a theatre designer, and worked as a concept artist for films such as Pixar's WALL-E. He is currently directing a short film with Passion Pictures Australia; his most recently published book is Rules of Summer. Shaun is the winner of the 2011 Astrid Lindgren prize, the world's richest children's literature award. The award described Shaun as 'a masterly visually storyteller'. The Lost Thing animation won an Oscar for the best animated short film.
