The Lost Thing soon in Swedish


Shaun Tan´s The Lost Thing is about to be available for the Swedish readers. This brilliant book will be launched in March by Kabusa Agency. “Borttappad” is Kabusa’s third book by the 2011 ALMA recipient Shaun Tan. Last year Kabusa published Det Röda Trädet (The Red Tree), while Ankomsten (The Arrival) came in 2010. Both books have been tremendously well received in Sweden, and have been published in several editions.

As you might know Shaun Tan adapted the The Lost Thing into an animated film, which received an Academy Award Oscar for Best animated film last year. Here’s a beautiful clip from YouTube, a live recording with music from the film, composed by Michael Yezerski.
