Shaun Tan and Fairy Tales

Shaun Tan, whose work I am a bit familiar with, but clearly I need to know more, is featured in a Financial Times recent article. My dad sent it to me, and I'm glad  he did. The story delves into the darkness of fairy tales, and Tan's work with graphic novels, as well as fairy tales.

Tan, like anyone who takes fairy tales seriously, recognizes their dark sides. His works include acclaimed graphic novels and and an Oscar winning short.
