A vast range of the experiences familiar to migrants of all kinds and at any time are brilliantly told through the stunning illustrations of this graphic novel. Against a changing background of city and country scapes, the man at the centre of the story carries his suitcase. His feelings of confusion and isolation, the problems of communication and misunderstanding, the despair and then the easing of the experience through friendship spill beyond the individual and give great insight into the complexities of all such journeys.
A silent graphic novel, which tells the story of every migrant, every refugee, every displaced person, and a tribute to all those who've made the journey. It investigates the question of what drives so many to leave everything behind and travel alone to a mysterious country, a place without family or friends. From the author and illustrator of "The Lost Thing" and "The Red Tree", both of which won awards. Aimed at children aged 8-12yrs, but has great crossover appeal. *Also appeared in April Buyer's Notes*
