Read full description of the books Rules of Summer:When you are a child, anything can happen. At least that's what it feels like, as your expectations are not yet based on a whole lot of sobering experience. Who knows what would happen if you did something you are not supposed to do?! Say, if you left the back door open overnight! Or if you gave your keys to a stranger! Or if you forgot your way home!! Just imagine all the crazy things that could happen...
Rules of the Summer illustrates the child's boundless imagination, while at the same time tracing its still rather clumsy attempts to make our seemingly unpredictable world more manageable by creating a set of basic rules to live by: "Always know the way home," for example.
As you would expect from a book by Shaun Tan, Rules of the Summer is nothing if not thoughtful and gorgeous. The concept has its limitations, though, and in the absence of a real plot, things started to feel a little empty and repetitive to me towards the end. Not quite on the level of Tan's masterpiece Arrival, I'd say, but certainly worth checking out.
