"This painting was originally published in 'Bicycle', a children's anthology produced to raise money for the vital supply of bicycles in developing nations. This work also doubled as a preliminary study for the very similar painting to follow 'Always know the way home' in Rules of Summer. It is based on a recurring dream I had as a child, of getting lost with my brother on the way home from school (which was about a 1km walk from our house) and the day suddenly turning to" - Shaun Tan
