Quest is a captivating and worthy sequel to Journey. Again, we are following a young girl with her magic crayon, and this time she has a new companion on her journeys. The illustrations are simple, yet complex, and I found myself searching each page for details that were not apparent upon first glance. Another keeper. ( )

There are no words in Quest. The story, as I interpret it, is about two kids that go on a journey with their magic chalk that can create anything. They go on many adventures, and eventually get crowned prince and princess of their land after saving the king.
Really cool idea to have kids interpret the story in their own way, I bet. Wordless books would be good for that in general. ( )

I love wordless books because they help spark imagination. Children can tell/write their own interpretation of what’s happening in the pictures.

There is no text! It doesn't matter though because the story can be followed through the illustrations. A great book to teach kids how to guess and infer what is happening in the story by the visual clues and not the text telling them what the author wants the story to be. This format allows kids to create their own stories around what they see in the illustrations.

I really enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed 'Journey', the prequel to this story. It is full of beautifully drawn art and beautiful imagery that will draw kids in with the color and adventure this book has to offer. This is a great book to use in the classroom because it allows children to interpret what they are seeing without words depicting the meaning of the story. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763665959, Hardcover)

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

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.
