'Behind every enduring innovation lies a vast cemetery of achievement: the world of failed inventions. Award-winning author and illustrator Shaun Tan explores this forgotten world in The Oopsatoreum, a fictional tale of a strikingly original but spectacularly unsuccessful inventor, Henry A. Mintox.'

Works about this Work

Using Shaun Tan's Work to Foster Multiliteracies in 21st-Century Classrooms Ashley Dallacqua , Sara Kersten, , Mindi Rhoades , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Reading Teacher , October vol. 69 no. 2 2015; (p. 207-217)
'This paper explores work in multimodality and design as it relates to 21st century multiliteracies. After outlining the concept of a multiliteracies pedagogy, this paper describes multimodality and multimodal texts. Moving from the theoretical to the practical, this paper primarily explores selected multimodal works of Shaun Tan and the opportunities they open to bring a multiliteracies pedagogy to classrooms. It provides approachable pedagogical strategies that can be successful in a variety of classrooms. We conclude that Tan's work ultimately acts as an accessible resource for educators striving to employ multiliteracies practices and bring multimodal texts into their classrooms.'
