I find it somewhat ironic that I am at a loss for words trying to describe a book that had no words whatsoever... but that's what has happened. The Arrival is simply stunning!

The artwork is powerful and evocative, all while being mesmerizingly beautiful. The narrative is beautiful, and I really felt the loss, confusion and hope that the immigrant man felt as I turned the pages. Have I mentioned that the drawings are spectacular yet, because they truly are! I've just "read" this book twice in a row now, and I think I'm going to go start at the beginning once again... it's that wonderful!
