AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Combining humour and surreal fantasy, Shaun Tan pictures a summer in the lives of two boys. Each spread tells of an event and the lesson learned. By turns, these events become darker and more sinister as the boys push their games further and further.' (Publisher's blurb)

Touching Texts : Adaptations of Australian Picture Books for Tablets Erica Hateley , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Picture Books and Beyond 2014; (p. 108-122)

This chapter explores adaptations of three recent Australian picture books for tablet technology, attending to the effects of interactivity and digital affordances on narrative coherence and meaning. In this chapter, Hateley examines three e-texts which seek to adapt the experience of a printed picture book to a digital environment but which do so with varying levels of exploitation of digital affordances. Reading e-book and app versions of recent picture books highlights the opportunities and constraints offered by such texts in contemporary reading cultures: inside the classroom and beyond.
