Book Review – Journey

Journey by Arron Becker.

This book that first came out in 2014 has gone onto claim many accolades and awards as well as spawn two sequel book ‘Quest’ and ‘Return’. 

Looking through it is quite an extraordinary experience as there are no words for a start, but then there doesn’t need to be any. The stunning illustrations carry the viewer along on the ‘journey’ of a young girl, who being rather bored at home draws a door on the wall with a red crayon and steps through. 

Beautiful scenes are depicted along the way such as Roman inspired towns with high aqueducts and Arabian settings with grand domed spires. The magic crayon gets used to draw whatever the girl needs.

A visual feast for the eyes and the imagination.
