Journey

Amazon.com Rating:

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, author-illustrator Aaron Becker launches an ordinary child on an extraordinary journey toward her greatest and most exciting adventure of all.

The story of Journey continues in the sequels, Quest and Return.

Description

Amazon.com Review

The influence of Harold and the Purple Crayon is unmistakable, but rather than a cheap imitation, Journey is a beautiful 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 draw 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 best adventure of all: friendship. --Seira Wilson
