    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. PRAISE for The Arrival: 'With this haunting, wordless sequence about a lonely emigrant in a bewildering city, Tan ...finds in the graphic novel format an ideal outlet for his sublime imagination...few will remain unaffected by this timeless stunner.' Publishers Weekly (USA) 'His unique ability to capture the heart and soul of a story through images more than proves the truth of the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words.' The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) 'It is a magnificent and timely story of hope and persistence: deeply moving, disturbing and, at the same time, infused with quiet joy and a grand, buoyant openness to experience.'
    The Monthly (Australia) 'An imaginative triumph, and every home should have one.' The Times (UK) 'Filled with both subtlety and grandeur, the book is a unique work that not only fulfils but also expands the potential of its form.' Booklist (USA) 'an unashamed paean to the immigrant's spirit, tenacity and guts, perfectly crafted for maximum effect.' Kirkus Reviews (USA) 'a remarkable and skilful work of art' The Sunday Times (UK) 'This book should be 'read' by adults and children alike. It's astonishing.' The Bookseller (UK)
