The Bookseller

«A nightmarish mix of cute and gruesome»

The Guardian

«At first, The Singing Bones is a book to look at and be bewildered, but the more it is studied, the more fascinating this lesson becomes in not accepting the traditional, but extending its meaning, without losing the original. It is both intriguing and interesting.»

Newbury Weekly News

«One of my absolute favourite books which takes the dark side of fairy tales is The singing Bones by Shaun Tan, which is a collection of photographs of clay sculptures made by Tan and inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales, of interest to anybody who cares about art, or sculpture, or fairy tale, or indeed horror.»

Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times

«“The Singing Bones is a very rich resource: a treasure chest of entertaining stories, an inspiration for art work, a prompt for discussions and research, a handsome beautifully designed book, and above all an exemplar of outstanding creativity.”»
