Vacancy

By Jen Lee
Illustrated by Jen Lee

Vacancy, along with many of Lee's works, explores the ways that animals think; how they may internalise their changing environment and express their thoughts, fears or excitement.

In a dishevelled and ransacked backyard, a dog named Simon has been forgotten by his owners. Simon contemplates breaking free and eventually partners up with a raccoon and a deer who take him into the woods. But Simon realizes he is not quite ready to live in the wild. Vacancy, along with many of Lee's works, explores the ways that animals think; how they may internalise their changing environment and express their thoughts, fears or excitement. And in the abandoned and destroyed areas of the town strange things begin to happen...
