BOOKWORM MEDAL “The arrival” by Shaun Tan

Not really a fan of reading??? I have something for you! =)

Here is the most amazing wordless graphic novel I have seen in my life.THE ARRIVAL.

The arrival is about a man who leaves his homeland and sets off for a new country, where he must build a new life for himself and his family. Shaun Tan captures the immigrant experience through clear, hypnotic images; all its pages are filled with complicated and detailed artwork.

It is a shockingly imaginative novel that captures the sense of adventure and wonder that surrounds a new arrival on the shores of a shining new city.

“An absolute wonder.  It’s not often you see art of this quality, or a book that’s so brave.” – Marjane Satrapi, author of Persepolis
