The Arrival
Shaun Tan
Hatchett Australia
English (Belonging)
This is a wordless narrative about a man's journey
from a land of dark and foreboding events to a new
land full of promise and hope. Tan's remarkable images capture vividly the immigration/refugee experience from leaving
loved ones behind, to struggling with an unfamiliar language
and ultimately to finding how he can belong in this new land.
Kerry Gittins
The Lost Thing
Shaun Tan
Hatchett Australia
English (Belonging)
A boy finds an unusual looking creature whilst out collecting
bottle tops on the beach. It becomes obvious that the creature
is lost so the boy tries to help the 'thing' discover where it
comes from. The biggest problem they encounter is the
indifference from everyone they meet along the way. But one
small creature eventually directs them to a place where
there are many other odd and lost things and where the boys'
lost thing finally feels he belongs.

Vampyre
Margaret Wild & Andrew Yeo
Walker Books
English (Belonging)
A Vampyre boy reflects on his childhood and because of his longing
to live in the light of the day, feels alienated from his family and questions
his identity. This story is a very evocative and thought provoking journey
from darkness to light and explores the themes of choices, identity,
alientation and belonging.
