A truly remarkable work of art that is already one of the most talked-about book of the season.
"A shockingly imaginative graphic novel that captures the sense of adventure and wonder that surrounds a new arrival on the shores of a shining new city. Wordless, but with perfect narrative flow, Tan gives us a story filled with cityscapes worthy of Winsor McCay." -- Jeff Smith, author of Bone
"A magical river of strangers and their stories " -- Craig Thompson, author of Blankets
"Magnificent." -- David Small, Caldecott Medalist.
