I believe that everyone--be they adult or child--should own at leastone picture book. The Arrival is that one book. In style and substance it defies simple classification: it has the narrative thread of graphic novels; the technical precision of fine art; the wonder & whimsy inherent in kid's books. But like Tan's previous books (gorgeous, surreal children's stories), there exists deeper layers of visual and emotional meaning--The Arrival warrants continual revisiting; like a stroll through your favorite park at different times of the year, you'll always find something new to spark the imagination.
