Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2017 and awarded the Amnesty CILIP Honour | Shortlisted for the 2017 Klaus Flugge Prize | Shortlisted for the UKLA 2017 Book Award | A powerful picturebook which teacher judges described as “taking children to new experiences outside their own”.

Synopsis

The Journey by Francesca Sanna

“I look up to the birds that seem to be following us. They are migrating just like us. And their journey, like ours, is very long, but they don’t have to cross any borders.”

Based on her interactions with people forced to seek a new home, and told from the perspective of a young child, Francesca Sanna has created a beautiful and sensitive book that is full of significance for our time.
