"It's the triumph of this lavish yet somberly monochromatic wordless book that readers are put right into the refugee's shoes: we're as out of place as he, learning the customs of the country in step with the protagonist."
Horn Book, 11/1/2007Review:
"By placing photorealistic human figures in abstract, surreal environments, Tan evokes the intimacy of an individual immigrant experience without ever settling on a specific person, time or place...The effect is mesmerizing...Such visual eloquence can only motivate readers to seek out any future graphic novel from Shaun Tan, regardless of where they might be shelved."
Gene Luen Yang, New York Times Book Review, 11/11/2007
