This book is about a girl that uses her imagination to go on an adventure in her room. I think this will be a great book to use for young children because it teaches children to be creative and adventurous. Each of the illustrations are detail that your could notice connection through out the book each time you read it. Young students can connect to this book if they ever felt lonely and wants to find someone they can relate with. This may not be a book however to use with kindergarten students as the story line is a little hard to understand without inferring whats going on. ( )

I enjoyed this wordless picture book, both for the amazing illustrations and the themes of imagination and creativity. I spent many moments looking at the detailed and colorful pictures. I noticed new themes or details in each read through, including the boy and his bird. Each setting in the book felt fantastic and intriguing in different ways, from the dim forest, to the busy city of canals, to the flying ship, to the desert palace. I like how each of these locations seems to be inspired by the main character's knowledge, which can be seen in her room. I believe that many young readers can identify with a need for fantastic connections or imaginary inspiration. The main character has a sort of influence over the fantasy world through her colored chalk, and by the end, meets a friend to collaborate, explore, and create with. ( )

I gave this book 5/5 stars because it teaches students to be innovative and adventurous. In the story, a girl was bored at home, so she uses a special marker to go on adventures. This book will help the students learn how to solve problems by watching the girl get out of trouble. This will also teach them creativity by having them use their imagination. Students will easily be inspired to explore and problem solve. I recommend this story for independent readings in the classroom. ( )

Picture book. This was a really fun book about a girl who feels alone in the world, so in her imagination she has this red crayon and is able to draw a door to her little world where she is everything. There are castles, flying carpets, and everything. However, during her journey she is captured by an evil emperor. She ends up getting by showing tremendous courage and kindness. Then she is able to make her way back home where she doesn't feel by herself anymore. ( )

his book is great for all ages. A young girl goes through a lavish and elaborate journey through a fancy setting. in order for her to get to the other side, she had to draw a magical pathway to the other realm. The book is a wordless and is filled with elaborate fancy descriptions. ( )

Follow a girl on an elaborate flight of fancy in a wondrously illustrated, wordless picture book about self-determination — and unexpected friendship.

A lonely girl draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound. Red marker in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon, and a flying carpet that carry her on a spectacular journey toward an uncertain destiny. When she is captured by a sinister emperor, only an act of tremendous courage and kindness can set her free. Can it also lead her home and to her heart’s desire? With supple line, luminous color, and nimble flights of fancy, author-illustrator Aaron Becker launches an ordinary child on an extraordinary journey toward her greatest and most exciting adventure of all.
