Review: The arrival by Shaun Tan

I am finally a proud owner of the wonderful book The Arrival, a children's book about immigration. I knew it was amazing from just reading about the story but after going through the book cover to cover while all I could hear was the autumn wind outside - it was almost like a magical moment or religious moment as some would say.

It's such a fantastic book, there are no words in the book but the images says a thousand words and more. You feel with the main character: sadness, happiness and confusion. It's so beautifully and imaginatively made while keeping it real with how immigration must feel.

I think this is an important book and more people should "read" (see the pictures) no matter what age. It's definitely one of my favourite children's books.
