The Red Tree by Shaun Tan

Call Number: F TAN

ISBN: 0734401728

Publication Date: 2002



A small child awakes to find blackened leaves falling from her bedroom ceiling, threatening to quietly overwhelm her. 'Sometimes you wake up with nothing to look forward to...' As she wanders around a world that is complex, puzzling and alienating, she is overtaken by a myriad of feelings. Just as it seems all hope is lost, the girl returns to her bedroom to find that a tiny red seedling has grown to fill the room with warm light. As a kind of fable, The Red Tree seeks to remind us that, though some bad feelings are inevitable, they are always tempered by hope. It is through looking at a little girls journey from anxiety, depression and loneliness to self discovery that this picture book explores the concept of transitions.
