Wordless, beautiful, wispy, perfect. Told in fantastical sketches, a father emigrates. He receives help in understanding the new home by strangers, other immigrants (I'm probably switching up imm/em-igrate) with harrowing stories. The last few pages caused me to tear up in the bookstore.

Mariel His books look so so good.

Eh?Eh! I loved this one so much. I only know of this one and a collection of 3 that just came out (I guess they were released separately in Australia, earlier?).
