Eerie, dark little story with a wonderfully subtle look back at history through Shaun Tan's fantastic illustrations. I loved the not-so-happy ending...

It took me multiple reading to enjoy this as much as I do now and, ultimately, fully interpret what I think the story is sharing with us. As always with both Gary Crew AND Shaun Tan, I need a bit of warming up to appreciate them so this took an evening of close reading to glean some understanding...

I requested this book from my library solely to see more of Shaun Tan's illustrations. He's the illustrator, but not the writer of the story. The story is one of those creepy, horror stories that never comes right out and names the threat, or gives exact details about how the threat is eventually...

A Gary Crew – Shaun Tan collaboration which promises a delightful blend of creepy storytelling and rich illustrations. This picture book tells the story of Tristan who often visits the city dump in search of treasure. One day he finds a mysterious ornate box in which there is a seeing tool, much...

May contain spoilers. This is a book that is very hard to judge. I can imagine that the story and outcome are a reflection on the readers attitude to life, or perhaps their experiences. From this I felt that the "Viewmaster" represented the never ending cycle of destruction and death, that no matt...

Not sure where to start with this book. I was on edge the entire book, the colours and illustrations gave an eerie atmosphere, one that made me very uncomfortable. I would say that this is challenging picturebook that I may use in Year 5/6 but not any lower. The story line gave topics that could...

Shaun Tan's illustrations are incredibly detailed and eerily beautiful, which fits Gary Crew's story perfectly: However, I wasn't too impressed by the (horror?) story itself. I feel that I somehow missed its point...

Tan's writing and illustrations are always very thought-provoking. The Viewer is the story of a young boy who regularly finds treasures at the local dump. One day he comes home with a box full of instruments for looking at things, including a viewfinder toy. Through this he looks at the pictures,...
