#ReadingResolutions Day 28: There is gnawing #Fear here and anxiety that eats at one‘s insides. Such a powerful, viscerally affecting wordless book. Tregonning, the author, committed suicide before she finished the book, as she suffered deeply from depression. Shaun Tan finished the book for her. Full review here: https://wp.me/pDlzr-eTK

It‘s pretty wonderful how the illustrator portrays a child‘s growing anxiety in this one.

This powerful book about nagging anxiety with a kid-friendly, hopeful ending has stuck with me for days. The publication story is equally powerful and I‘m glad Shaun Tan saw it to completion.

Bradleygirl You had me at Shaun Tan 1y
RebL @Bradleygirl Notice how he doesn‘t even put his name on the cover in order to honor the author. Swoon. 1y

Clearly, this is a must-have title. The story behind the book's creation is harrowing and immensely sad. An important title to remind us that people who are in pain tend to hurt other people. And that help is always near.
