Special Event: Shaun Tan Night at Three Four Knock on the Door

Organised by one of our favourite children’s bookstores in Melbourne, this special event is not one you want to miss especially if you have school-aged children.

Sadly, Shaun Tan can’t make it himself but LJ and Danielle from Three Four Knock on the Door are going all out to celebrate his wonderful literary achievements. I don’t know too many bookstores that open their doors after hours for an event like this.

LJ will start the night by reading The Lost Thing. Then you can settle in and get cosy with your blanket and pillow and enjoy watching The Lost Thing animation. Three Four Knock on the Door will be providing popcorn and juice for a full cinematic experience.

There’ll be a wonderful opportunity for children to discuss and compare the book and animation and time to read some other Shaun Tan books.

I’m a huge fan of Shaun Tan so I’ll be there (without my daughter because she’s not quite ready for the amazing works of Shaun Tan). I hope I see you there too.
