Description


From the New York Times bestselling author of The Arrival

When a foreign exchange student comes to live with a typical suburban family, he brings with him a boundless sense of curiosity -- and a stream of unexpected questions (which his hosts are never quite sure how to answer). But when the moment comes to say good-bye, a beautiful surprise awaits, and a gift the family will never forget.This new stand-alone edition of one of Shaun Tan's most beloved and inviting stories is perfect for sharing with readers of all ages who appreciate stories of wonder, exploration, and life's everyday mysteries.
