Storytime with AARON BECKER at Books Inc. Palo Alto
Books Inc. in Palo Alto, Monday, September 22 at 4:30pm
Books Inc. Palo Alto presents a very special storytime with author / illustrator Aaron Becker sharing the sequel to Journey--which was awarded the Caldecott Honor--Quest. A king emerges from a hidden door in a city park, startling two children sheltering from the rain. No sooner does he push a map and some strange objects into their hands than he is captured by hostile forces that whisk him back through the enchanted door. Just like that, the children are caught up in a Quest to rescue the king and his kingdom from darkness, while illuminating the farthest reaches of their imagination. Colored markers in hand, they make their own way through the portal, under the sea, through a tropical paradise, over a perilous bridge, and high in the air with the help of a winged friend. "Journey "lovers will be thrilled to follow its characters on a new adventure threaded with familiar elements, while new fans will be swept into a visually captivating story that is even richer and more exhilarating than the first.

Aaron Becker, creator of Journey, a Caldecott Honor book, presents Quest, the next chapter in his stunning wordless fantasy.

Tuesday, September 23 at 3:00

Becker continues the loving and gorgeous homage to imagination he began in Journey with this direct sequel. ... In addition to the winning adventure of the silent story, Becker manages to evolve his imagery with more sophisticated designs and ideas that draw readers into the narrative ever more deeply, proving once again that lush details, a meticulous sense of motion and action, and a boundless love of fun are worth all the words in the world. -Booklist (starred review)

Aaron Becker has made several memorable Journeys in his lifetime. He’s lived in rural Japan and East Africa, backpacked through the South Pacific and Sweden, and most recently, ventured from the San Francisco Bay area to Amherst, Massachusetts, a town he now calls home with his wife, daughter, and lazy cat. To this day, his favorite destination remains his imagination, where you can often find him drawing secret doorways and magic lanterns.
