Visually stunning, The Arrival is a wordless graphic novel with layers of meaning.  Shaun Tan's gift as an artist is enough of a reason to carve out some quiet time with this book.  But what Tan does so well through his images is to convey the sense of "otherness" familiar to everyone, not just the immigrant at the heart of this story.  Having to figure out how to make one's way in a new environment, learn "a new language," hope that strangers will reach out with warmth and support, all while bearing up under the pressures of life and shadows that come and go is the kind of heroic story for which no cape is required.
