Best Books of the Month, August 2013: The influence of Harold and the Purple Crayon is unmistakable, but
rather than a cheap imitation, Journey is a beautiful homage to the classic. Aaron Becker’s balance of color and
immaculately detailed illustrations capture the eye and effortlessly tell the story of a lonely girl who uses a red
crayon to draw her way into a magical adventure. As the journey comes full circle, a purple bird--the work of another
imagination--leads the way to the best adventure of all: friendship. Journey is an incredible work of storytelling
through art that will appeal to readers of all ages. --Seira Wilson

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-4-In this auspicious debut picture book, a lonely girl escapes the boredom of a sepia-toned world by
drawing a doorway to a magical realm. Harkening back to Crockett Johnson's Harold, this child uses a red crayon and a
lot of imagination to venture across a Venice-like kingdom, fly among a fleet of steampunk airships, and take off on a
magic carpet ride. When an act of compassion and bravery lands the heroine in a cage, it's her magic crayon and a bit of
help from a new friend that save the day. This captivating wordless story has all the elements of a classic adventure:
unknown lands, death-defying stunts, and a plucky lead. Finely detailed pen-and-ink line drawings combine with luminous
washes of watercolor to create a rich and enchanting setting. Becker builds a sense of suspense by varying colorful
full-page spreads with smaller vignettes that feature the girl and her red crayon surrounded by ample white space. The
final page shows the youngster and her new friend riding a tandem bicycle pointing onward. Endpapers spotlight all
manner of transportation: ships, trains, cars, and even space shuttles. The strong visual narrative makes this an
appealing choice for a wide range of ages. By the turn of the last page, children will immediately begin imagining the
next adventure.-Kiera Parrott, Darien Library, CTα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of
