What a wonderful book about the immigrant experience. It is told completely in pictures which delightfully capture what it is to live, shop, and work in a place where you don't understand the spoken or written language or how things work. Besides the protagonist, the book also tells the tales of two or three other immigrants, tenderly and poignantly. The illustrations are captivating and the lack of text doesn't inhibit understanding at all.
