it was amazing
bookshelves: australian-authors, comic-graphic, library-book, five-star
Read in July, 2011

Great pictures, what an artist, what a thinker. Liked the use of unusual animals, food, scenery to depict how unusual new lands can be and also the graphich depiction of the different threats which the immigrants come from, eg the ? dragon's tale.

Ubalstecha Dee-Ann - this is a great, great book. Shaun Tan is a genius.

Dee-Ann I agree. There is a lot to be read into this book, yet it is also very simple and elegant.

message 3: by Sue (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sue Bursztynski I was amazed at how much story could be told without a word of text. It took my library technician and me quite a while to "read" this. Wonderful book!
