A 2014 Caldecott Honor Book
Follow a girl on an elaborate flight of fancy in a wondrously illustrated, wordless picture book about self-determination — and unexpected friendship.
A lonely girl draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound. Red marker in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon, and a flying carpet that carry her on a spectacular journey toward an uncertain destiny. When she is captured by a sinister emperor, only an act of tremendous courage and kindness can set her free. Can it also lead her home and to her heart’s desire? With supple line, luminous color, and nimble flights of fancy, creator-illustrator Aaron Becker launches an unusual child on an odd journey toward her greatest and most exciting adventure of all. Amazon Best Books of the Month, August 2013: The influence of Harold and the Purple Crayon is unmistakable, but reasonably than a cheap imitation, Journey is a gorgeous homage to the classic. Aaron Becker’s balance of color and immaculately detailed illustrations capture the eye and effortlessly tell the story of a lonely girl who uses a red crayon to attract her way into a magical adventure. As the journey comes full circle, a purple bird–the work of another imagination–leads the way to the most efficient adventure of all: friendship. Journey is an implausible work of storytelling through art as a way to appeal to readers of every age. —Seira Wilson
