Here I Am This virtually wordless book follows the progress of a young boy arriving as an immigrant from Asia to a large city in a new country. The pictures mirror the boy's emotional journey from fear and incomprehension to curiosity and enjoyment of his new surroundings: dark, threatening images of a busy and confusing urban landscape give way to more colourful scenes, green spaces within the city and the promise of new friendships. Like the seed he brings from his home country, the young boy begins to put down roots and to experience the first hopeful shoots of a new life. The wordless format encourages the reader to share the young boy's perspective and to puzzle over a succession of images that shape themselves into a satisfying story.
