The Red Tree

Just in time for Shaun Tan‘s arrival to Stockholm, two new language editions of his remarkable picture book The Red Tree are available in bookstores.

The Swedish edition is published by Kabusa Böcker and the Arabic edition is published by Dar-Al-Muna.

The Red Tree lends itself to interpretation and has been adapted for the stage. Soon the Barking Gecko will premier their stage version of the book.

“The ideas of the original book are very broad and I think point more to a method of expression – of ‘emotional worlds’ – rather than any very specific content, so it not only endures variable interpretations, it almost demands them. This seems appropriate, as everyone’s experience of ‘suffering’ or ‘hope’ is unique and personal.” – Shaun Tan about The Red Tree
