Tales from Outer Suburbia by Shaun Tan

I'm not a fan of short story collections, mostly because the words end before the story does. This book is different.

Each story is very weird yet fascinating. The illustrations accompanying each story add more than just words could ever do. The format of some of the stories, including an entire story written through pieces of scrap paper, and another story told in the format of a newspaper article--newspaper included, add new ways to see details described within each story.

This is definitely a book you need to check out!
