Haunting, original and told entirely through exquisitely imagined black, white and sepia pictures, THE ARRIVAL is the story of one man's encounter with life in a strange new world. It's a timeless, universal story that will resonate with anyone, anywhere who has struggled to start again in a place that is different to the one they have always known. Much loved around the world, THE ARRIVAL has also won numerous awards including the CBCA Book of the Year and 'Best Album' at the Augouleme Festival in France. 'Tan's lovingly laid out and masterfully rendered tale about the immigrant experience is a documentary magically told.' -- Art Spiegelman, author of Maus 'An absolute wonder.' -- Marjane Satrapi, author of Persepolis 'A magical river of strangers and their stories ' -- Craig Thompson, author of Blankets '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 'Shaun Tan's artwork creates a fantastical, hauntingly familiar atmosphere... Strange, moving, and beautiful.' -- Jon J. Muth, Caldecott Medal-winning author of Zen Shorts 'Bravo.' -- Brian Selznick, Caldecott Medal-winning author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret 'Magnificent.' -- David Small, Caldecott Medalist
