JOURNEY by Aaron Becker

Good morning my toy-dusty friends!

I think it’s time for another book recommendation, so here we go:

JOURNEY was published by Candlewick Press in 2013 and won the Caldecott Medal.

A girl opens a doorway to another land with a red marker and goes on an adventure!

The illustrations are outstanding and I love the spirit of adventure. I’m not going to say much about the story – you’ll have to pick the book up if you want to know more!

A follow-up, QUEST, was published in 2014.

And RETURN was released in 2016, in which the girl’s father follows her into the other land.

If you’re not acquainted with this wordless trilogy, be sure to check it out.

Okay, that’s it for now.

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next time.

Toydust out!
