Eric
by Shaun Tan
A beautiful little book about a beautiful little creature called Eric, who is supposed to be a foreign exchange student. When he comes to stay, he sets up home in the cupboard, spending his days finding out about the world, from things like stamps to cereal packets. Is the way that Eric is different all down to a ‘cultural thing’, as Mum says, or does his parting gift suggest he may come from a very special place indeed? A book about difference, Eric is full of exquisite black and white drawings and ends with a dash of colourful magic.
