This heart-wrenching story opens with a husband kissing his wife and daughter goodbye as he journeys in search of a job that will provide a better life for them all. Artist Shaun Tan explores the experience of the immigrant, isolated and alone in a fantastic new world. Using only images to tell the story and limited only by his imagination, Tan evokes emotions that are easily relatable. From the first image you will be transported to a magical world that won’t let go until you turn the final tear-jerking page.
