Rules that make a lot of sense, rules that make no sense... the rules of childhood. This book is gorgeous - and creepy! The beautiful illustrations in this book remind me of Yves Tanguy, the French surrealist painter. Gorgeous, disconcerting, and lovely. A book to enjoy with older kids.

Older picture book readers who appreciate the strange and surreal tone of Chris Van Allsburg's The Mysteries of Harris Burdick will be spellbound by this unusual story from the author of The Arrival. In Rules of Summer, an older brother teaches his younger brother the rules of survival as they navigate a beautifully bizarre version of suburbia filled with baseball-playing robots, giant rabbits, glowing gardens, and more. Shaun Tan's "evocative, enthralling and absolutely astounding artwork" (Kirkus Reviews) inspires wonder, invites repeat readings, and offers a tantalizing jumping-off point for kids to make imaginative leaps of their own.
