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
