Using only sepia-toned artwork Tan relates the age-old story of immigration in a brand-new way. This graphic novel features a world with strange and unusual origami-like creatures and buildings that have symbols all over them and flying elevators and ships. Looking through this I kept thinking about my 7 year old niece who lives a state away. I wondered what she would've imagined & said about the man and his experience as she flipped these pages. I think I will send it to her and find out.
A wonderful visual treat, I highly recommend this for children & adults.
