Talented narrator Humphrey Bower brings Shaun Tan's acclaimed picture book to life. In this sweet and wonderfully odd story, a child scavenging on the beach for his bottle-top collection finds a large lost creature and sets about finding it a home. Bower's Australian accent is pleasant and well suited to Tan's background. Eerie but fun music with a science-fiction feel adds to the experience, and kids (as well as lighthearted adults) will enjoy listening to this audiobook while poring over Tan's pictures.
A kid finds a lost "thing" on the beach where he's scavenging for his bottle top collection. The thing is a large, freakish creature but no one else really notices it, it's simply not a part of their familiar day-to-day reality. So the kid takes it upon himself to try to find where the lost thing belongs.
