The Island
The Island | Armin Greder
1 post | 3 read
In the morning the people of the island found a man sitting on the shore, there where fate and the ocean currents had set him and his frail raft in the night. When he saw them coming towards him, he rose to his feet. He was not like them. This internationally acclaimed, award-winning picture book is astonishing, powerful and timely.

#MayMovieMagic Day 8: #GimmeShelter says this foreigner in ”The Island.” In return, he experienced glaring xenophobia and outright rejection. While most of the stories we have featured for our immigrant theme share narratives of assimilation and a renegotiation of one‘s identity, this ‘foreigner‘ was never given that opportunity to even feel remotely a sense of belonging. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-40F - a truly harrowing picturebook.
