Magically unfolding in words and images, Stålenhag’s Tales from the Loop is an extraordinary plunge into an alternative 1980s, filled with abandoned robots, apocalyptic architecture, dinosaurs and pure wonder.
These are the tales of an extraordinary journey: from the small towns of Sweden to the deserts of Nevada to the bitter chill of Siberia. A journey where children make friends with abandoned robots... in a world where dinosaurs roam freely.
These are the Tales from the Loop.
Stories told in both words and haunting illustrations, Tales From the Loop captures a not-too-distant reality that is both haunting and imminent: addressing the many ways developing technology and nature can create havoc and wonder in our world... and the hope we might still find in that future.
