What's The Arrival About

Publisher Summary

“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

“Bravo.” — Brian Selznick, Caldecott Medal-winning author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret

“Magnificent.” — David Small, Caldecott Medalist
