There is a new children’s book that has just been released by Candlewick Press by first time author Aaron Becker titled “Journey”.
This book has won the Junior Library Guild Selection Award.
The story line is:
“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.”
This is an illustrated wordless story of self-determination and an unexpected friendship.
This is a Hard Cover Picture Book for ages 4 to 8 with a grade range of Preschool to 3rd grade.
