The Arrival, by Shaun Tan

Publisher’s statement: A truly remarkable work of art that is already one of the most talked-about book of the season.

”A shockingly imaginative graphic novel that captures the sense of adventure and wonder that surrounds a new arrival on the shores of a shining new city. Wordless, but with perfect narrative flow, Tan gives us a story filled with cityscapes worthy of Winsor McCay.” — Jeff Smith, author of Bone

”A magical river of strangers and their stories!” — Craig Thompson, author of Blankets

”Magnificent.” — David Small, Caldecott Medalist
