General Note
Originally published: Melbourne, Vic.: Lothian, 2006
What drives so many to leave everything behind and journey 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. Staff Picks: A masterpiece of visual storytelling, this wordless graphic novel can be enjoyed on many levels by adults and children alike. A fantasy of absurd surrealism which also has a serious message about acceptance of refugees, you will marvel at the incredibly detailed pencil drawings, which draw on a variety of sources, based in part on photographs of immigrants at Ellis Island, New York, but influenced by surrealists such as Magritte and science fiction such as Bladerunner this is a wonderful example of how a great story needs no words to tell it.
