About the Book


The Arrival is a graphic novel about a father who immigrates to a foreign land in search of a better life for his family.  Through vivid images, readers are able to experience the uncertainty, hope, challenges and joys of making a new home in a far away land.  This book is a quick read - there are no words, just images.
