Newly arrived from their faraway homeland, a boy and his family enter into the lights, noise, and traffic of a busy American city. The language is unfamiliar. Food, habits, games, and gestures are puzzling. The boy clings tightly to his special keepsake from home and wonders how he will find his way.
Why we like it: This book is an immigration story told via wordless graphic novel. The pictures are vibrantly intense with lots of texture and movement. Kim and Sanchez took a typical immigration story and made it unique.
