And what if he's the only one who can save you when the darkness of winter comes rushing in? As usual, master artist and storyteller Shaun Tan shows us the strange truth of ordinary things -- rules, relationships, despair, and hope -- as only he can.

Convinced our days in the sun would be filled with adventure and activity, I set off on a path to share my time with others in a brand-new way. What I didn't know was that we could not get to the point of having fun and making memories without first building on some essential missing skills - my family had forgotten how to laugh together and it was time for us to learn this important lesson.

Locked in a world of loneliness and abuse, Jonathon has nonetheless managed to learn golf and tennis, and embrace a levelheaded approach to life. He has paid a price, however. He is grossly overweight and short on self confidence. His eyes are more often on the tops of his sneakers than level with the world around him.
