A wordless graphic novel... that says so much! Only thing to which I can *maybe* equate this is MirrorMask or perhaps Spirited Away... beautiful, evocative, a must-read for all. Read full review

Astonishingly beautiful! So much of the immigrant experience conveyed without a single word; which makes even more powerful when you consider an immigrant possibly not understanding a single word in their adopted homeland. Read full review
