Book Recommendation: THE ARRIVAL

Friday, June 12

The Arrival by Shaun Tan is very unique.
It has no words, but doesn't need them as Shaun Tan portrays the events with beautiful artwork.

It's the story of an immigrant who goes to a big city where everything is unfamiliar. However, it's set in a fantasy world, which serves to make you see through the eyes of an immigrant, as the sights are strange to you as well.

Anyone would be able to "read" it, but only older kids and adults could comprehend the symbolism.

My little sister didn't understand when I tried to explain and simply loved the pictures and creatures.
Ah well.
