Journey
by Aaron Becker

Journey is a beautifully illustrated wordless picture book. Its wonderful sepia tones capture the heart and imagination of a young girl who is bored. No-one in her family wants to play, they are all too busy. The young girl takes a crayon and begins drawing, opening up a world of imagined places. I love how the colours start to play together as her imagination takes over.
This really is a journey into strange worlds; even a little steampunkish with airships floating across the skies. We travel along with the young girl as she takes us to faraway places and even danger. The trailer is gorgeous. There is lots to look at and lots to discuss with this book on so many levels. Any child reading, will no doubt add to the story of the little girl and her journey across the world of imagination.
I bought this for the school library but will end up getting my own copy too. It really is a book to treasure and dip into again and again.
