What drives so many to leave everything behind and journey alone to a mysterious country, a place without family or friends, where everything is nameless and the future is unknown. This silent graphic novel is the story of every migrant, every refugee, every displaced person, and a tribute to all those who have made the journey.

THE ARRIVAL has become one of the most critically acclaimed books of recent years, a wordless masterpiece that describes a world beyond any familiar time or place.

Sited as No 35 in The Times 100 Best Books of all time. It has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.

"An imaginative triumph. Every home should have one." - The Times
"It will fascinate and occupy adults and children alike." - The Observer

Shaun Tan is an internationally and critically acclaimed prize winning author/ illustrator. Amongst others, he has won the Astrid Lindgren prize, the Crichton Award, the World Fantasy Best Artist Award and was the first BAME author to win the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2020.
