The Singing Bones by Shaun Tan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed reading (and viewing) this book. I loved the simple art characters that accompanied each of the Grimm tales - or more appropriately accurately - the essence of each tale. The brief excerpts of each tale will have readers wanting to read each in its entirety (just go online to find them), and the paired sculptures are simply beautiful.
I kept finding myself wanting to share the book with each of the English and Art teachers I work with because I can see some amazing projects coming to life both in writing and art classrooms.
