Waterstones Says

An immersive, wordless picture book that celebrates the vast majesty of the ocean, The Wanderer sends a lonely vessel through a series of breathtaking seascapes in an attempt to find its way home.

Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2022

A little boat sets out to sea and begins its voyage toward home. To get there it must travel across many strange, beautiful oceanscapes, full of fantastic creatures and deadly monsters, swept by terrifying storms and sailed by mysterious ships. Can the Wanderer pick a path through all these perils to a safe harbour?

This beautifully illustrated, wordless picturebook is a gateway into a captivating marine fantasy world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Mind-boggling... Imagine Shaun Tan having an aquatic love child with Edward Gorey, from a family tree that includes Tim Burton, Salvador Dali and Jacques Cousteau, and you'll begin to get the idea... There is danger, wonder, magic, surprise and awe. There are sea monsters and pearl divers' - Brian Selznick

'Wonderfully strange and strangely wonderful... an epic dream captured in superbly meticulous detail' - Shaun Tan, author of The Arrival

'Absolutely breathtaking. A psychedelic odyssey. What a talent. The level of detail is phenomenal, so rich and textured it just drew me in. I wanted to go swim in the ocean and weave in and out of the creatures' - Coralie Bickford-Smith, author of The Fox and the Star

'A deliciously bewildering fantasy. Each page is potent with story in its own right and as a whole it builds into a surreal, dreamlike journey... The artwork is absolutely stunning' - Pam Smy, author of Thornhill

'An exquisitely rendered world, full of beauty and wonder. Each page is a little masterpiece: one sad, one hopeful, one funny, one frightening - all wildly inventive' - Juman Malouf, author of The Trilogy of Two
