"So you want to hear a story? Well, I used to know a whole lot of pretty interesting ones. Some of them so funny you'd laugh yourself unconscious, others so terrible you'd never want to repeat them. But I can't remember any of those. So I'll just tell you about the time I found that lost thing."

A typically mystifying story from the master of socially-conscious surrealism, Shaun Tan. A boy finds a bizarre looking creature while out collecting bottle-tops at the beach. Despite the indifference of society at large, the boy feels sorry for the hapless creature and attempts to find out where it belongs.  This book is packed with the small, funny details and odd outlook on the world that make Shaun Tan's books great.
