A breathtakingly beautiful book which, like Shaun Tan's The Arrival, will move and delight readers of all ages. 'Reading this book is like being quietly ushered into another dimension by winged strangers, a place beyond the tread of normal earth-bound language. Ephemeral as a feather, timeless as a rock, and as true as both, Unforgotten is a magical experience.' - Shaun Tan
