Journey: 06/27/15

Journey by Aaron Becker is about  a girl whose imagination transports her into a world of colorful surprises.

Journey is Aaron Becker's debut picture book. A girl living in a drab urban area needs to entertain herself. She finds a red crayon and begins to draw. Her imagination and perhaps a little magic transports her into a world of colorful surprises.

The girl navigates through this world by following the red trail. It's not as obvious as Oz's yellow brick road but it's there in the details. There is adventure, and danger, uncertainty, and beauty in her journey.

For fans of the Harold and the Purple Crayon books by Crocket Johnson will see a little nod to the classic at the end of the book.

Five stars
