Praise
"It's the triumph of this lavish yet somberly monochromatic wordless book that readers are put right into the refugee's shoes: we're as out of place as he, learning the customs of the country in step with the protagonist."
"By placing photorealistic human figures in abstract, surreal environments, Tan evokes the intimacy of an individual immigrant experience without ever settling on a specific person, time or place...The effect is mesmerizing...Such visual eloquence can only motivate readers to seek out any future graphic novel from Shaun Tan, regardless of where they might be shelved."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Although saddened at having to leave the family he loves, the immigrant is certain that moving to the new land is the right thing to do and so ventures off to a strange land to begin a life that will hopefully reap the rewards he seeks through his sacrifice, hard work, and determination.
Annotation Filled with stunning, endlessly detailed illustration, and evocative, wordless storytelling, this is the tale of a new immigrant's struggles to find his way in a foreign land filled with unfamiliar animals, writing, and architecture. Leaving behind his wife and daughter, a man takes a crowded ship to a bustling city, bringing readers along flawlessly as he goes about the slow process of setting up a new life. Shaun Tan?s much-lauded sepia-toned graphic novel/lengthy picture book is both a 2007 New York Times Best Illustrated Children?s Book and a Notable Book, as well as a 2007 Kirkus Reviews Best Young-Adult Book.
