Shaun Tan

Throughout the course of the year, Year 6’s in Rooms 1 and 2 have been studying the works of world renowned, Perth born author and artist Shaun Tan.  We have studied a few of his many books including Cicada, The Rabbits and The Lost Thing. We have also enjoyed viewing the Academy Award winning The Lost Thing short film, an adaptation of the book. If you haven’t seen it, check it out!

Shaun Tan has been inspirational to us, as we created our own “Miscellaneous Anomalies” in the style of his characters.  We emailed these to him to enjoy, along with a few questions we devised.  Much to our excitement, he responded by answering all of our questions!

Below are a few Shaun Tan inspired anomalies created by our students.
