Write a review of the book, including plot points, if you wish: 

The book is a masterpiece through and through. Wordless, told through beautiful drawings, "The Arrival" portrays the immigrant experience in a compelling, universal light. As a man leaves his war-torn homeland in search of safety for his family, he is confronted with the challenges of settling down into a way of living that is completely foreign. The new-world that Tan creates is both strange and stunning, and the concept and characters are as strong as the graphics. This book most certainly deserves your attention.
