A stunning companion to Tales from Outer Suburbia, this collection of illustrated short stories is sure to delight Shaun Tan fans of all ages.

Where can we live if not in each other's shadow?

World-renowned artist Shaun Tan applies his unique imagination to a reflection on the nature of humans and animals, and our urban coexistence. From crocodile to frog, tiger to bee, this is a dark and surreal exploration of the perennial love and destruction we feel and inflict - of how animals can save us, and how our lives are forever entwined, for better or for worse.

Tales from the Inner City is a masterful work, bearing all of Shaun Tan's trademark wit and poignancy in both its prose and exquisite illustrations.
Industry Reviews
'Shaun Tan's Tales from the Inner City is close to my book of the year for 2018. It's a collection of stories that reminds us that animals are people too, each accompanied by Tan's beautiful illustrations, which have the remarkable combination of being sad, unsettling and humorous. This simply profound book is one for readers of any age, from 5 to 100.' - Stephen Romei, The Australian
