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)
