The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wordless picture book, Journey takes its readers on a magical trip to unexpected places where amazing things can happen. With no one to play with, a little girl draws herself a little doorway out of her bedroom. Pencil in hand, she steps into a beautiful green forest with a river running through it. Now she needs a boat! The girl’s pencil can grant her access to all she dreams of! The result is the creation of a story that celebrates the fulfilment of anyone’s wishes. The beautiful and detailed illustrations are a joy to get lost in.

Synopsis

Journey by Aaron Becker

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 pen in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon and a flying carpet which carry her on a spectacular journey...who knows where? When she is captured by a sinister emperor, only an act of tremendous courage and kindness can set her free. Can it also guide her home and to happiness?

In this exquisitely illustrated, wordless book, an ordinary child is launched on an extraordinary, magical journey towards her greatest and most rewarding adventure of all...In time-honoured tradition, a wordless adventure of the imagination.
