The Arrival
Guy Lochhead, 01/09/10
Worldess picture book by Shaun Tan about a man leaving his wife to try to find work in a new city. It’s a story about immigration and national and personal identity, but is nowhere near as didactic as ‘The Rabbits’. This is a beautiful, original book full of big, detailed drawings perfect for young readers. The central character survives on people’s goodwill. It’s a nice book.
