This extensive graphic novel is a fantasy that tells the story of immigration and the struggles immigrants faced. The monotone images depicts families, mythical animals and language, and war. Although I think this book is most appropriate for adults, it may be okay for some middle school age students. ( )

This is higher level wordless graphic novel. It depicts the struggles early immigrants faced and how they had to rely on one another for survival. The images are like high quality pencil drawing. Because of the lack of written text, this a is great book for inferencing and engaging student sin academic language. Students could bring in prior knowledge about immigration to follow this text. If they had no prior knowledge the images will guide readers through this book. There are many issues addressed as reason for immigration like war, finances, the importance of family in the process. You can see struggles in communication and hardships of starting over in land that is new to you. Beautifully written and fresh. ( )

It was a very abstract book and may be difficult for all the students to comprehend because some pictures were small and detailed.

The theme here is immigration and the difficulties immigrants face when they go somewhere new. This book is captivating with its illustrations and the message is dynamic and relatable for anyone who has been forced to move when they did not want to. It shows how difficult such a transition really is. This book would be really good for class discussion about immigration.

Teos on todellakin yhtä kaunis ja yhtä upeaa kuvakerrontaa kuin muistinkin. Sanoja ei tarvita, eikä niillä ole tässä tarinassakaan mitään sijaa. The Arrival kertoo aivan uskomattoman kouriintuntuvasti maahanmuutosta ja vieraan kulttuurin piirissä elämään oppimisesta.
 
Jurybegründung
"...Auf beeindruckende Weise gelingt es ihm, literarische Techniken wie Vor- und Rückblenden, Zeitdehnung und Zeitraffung sowie innere Monologe visuell umzusetzen. Wie seine Hauptfigur im neuen Land wird auch der Betrachter des Buches „gezwungen“, neu sehen zu lernen."

Book description
A fabulous introduction to graphic novels for younger readers. The Arrival wordless spins the universal tale of a man leaving his country to build a better life in an unfamiliar, and sometimes confusing and scary, land.
Haiku summary
