Only published a year ago, Journey has already gained widespread recognition as well as the award of a 2014 Caldecott Honor Book. Narrated in illustrations only, Becker’s pictorial tale takes readers on a flight of fancy, following the adventures of a young girl who escapes the monotony of her life at home. With the force of a red marker, our female adventurer enters a realm of remarkable medieval engineering, majestic grounds, and boundless skies. Clear and unpredictable in its narration of events, Journey makes for an expansive exploration of the imagination, friendship, and self-determination.
