Shaun Tan, Academy Award winning Director and Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award recipient, is an artist who defies category. The new App Wheelbarrow is co-releasing with his latest book Rules of Summer is likewise - you have to experience it to believe it!
It was created to give the user an interactive, immersive experience - allowing the Rules to be traversed and explored in detail. Shaun’s beautiful oil paintings, captured on a 200 mega-pixel Hasselblad digital camera exclusively for the app, entice you to explore, to pan pinch and peer, into a world of detail one could only otherwise experience in a gallery setting.
Shaun’s muted humor and charismatic characters are perfectly met by noted composer Sxip Shirey, who has created a sublime otherworldly score, drawing the reader deeper still into a surreal landscape. The App also has exclusive features. Read the entire book to unlock Tan’s concept art and explore further to unlock another special treat!

What's New in Version 1.3
A wonderful app to explore. We've had the book since the release overseas but this app allows you to expand the images to reveal brush strokes and textures. Wonderful for a budding young artist. Plus, there's so much to discuss on each and every page. A rare work that works equally well in both in Luddite and digital form.
The features to unlock - sketch book and journal- only add to the joy. Our family fell in love with Shaun Tan's The Lost Thing and we have immersed ourselves in his work ever since. Thank you for the beautiful app. Simply sublime!
Really nicely done
A thought-provoking children's book with art that is not what you've seen before. As an adult I enjoyed reading it on this app and being able to fully examine the art, and as a teacher librarian I am planning on sharing it with my students right after I pick up a hard copy to put in my library.
Astounding, but it stopped working
This book app worked for us for about two weeks. We *loved* it when it worked. It is just beautiful. Sad thing is, it started crashing on my ipad 2. I have tried reinstalling it and it doesn't help. I am actually pretty disappointed because two weeks wasn't nearly enough to get our fill of this wonderful, wonderful book.
