One of her top ten books that take you travelling, as told to the Guardian:
The Arrival by Shaun TanRead about the other books on the list.
This wonderful graphic novel encapsulates the epic emotions that go into leaving the land of your birth behind. The man in the hat in The Arrival has to leave his family and migrate across the vast ocean and sky to find himself in a strange new city full of peculiar animals, a foreign language, food and culture. The extraordinary sepia images of flight, changing seasons, representations of fear and loneliness, as well as friendship, make this book of pictures speak louder than words.
