Eric is effortlessly charming and eternally curious - a house guest whose approach to the world will capture your heart. From the winner of the 2020 Kate Greenaway Medal, this is a stand-alone picture book of one of the most loved stories from Shaun Tan's bestselling, internationally acclaimed collection of illustrated short stories, Tales from Outer Suburbia.

Some years ago we had a foreign exchange student come to stay, but he didn't want to use our guest room. He preferred to sleep in our pantry... He told us just to call him Eric.

'Shaun Tan's stories touch on wonder, fear, exploration and relationships. Questioning strangeness is a strong theme, a reminder that difference doesn't have to mean the same thing as fear.' The Age
