GORGEOUS. Wordless story, all picture. Something like [b:The Girl Who Ran Away|2006452|The Girl Who Ran Away|Joan G. Robinson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1427841095s/2006452.jpg|2010383] meets Ico. Nephew isn't old enough for this one either, but I may have to buy it for ME. And now I see it's a trilogy. I will be looking into [b:Quest|20708773|Quest (Journey Trilogy #2)|Aaron Becker|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1400890167s/20708773.jpg|34983901] ASAP. ( )

The book "Journey" would be such a fun read for one of my future classes. This book takes students on a journey where there are no words only pictures. This young girl with a red marker draws on her bedroom wall which opens to a magical world. I think this would be so fun to read to my students and let them come up with the words that would be written in the book. It would give me a chance to see how creative they can get. ( )

A lovely book in the spirit of "Harold and the Purple Crayon." ( )

I was hesitant to read a book that only had illustrations. There were no words, BUT so much was said. With everyone in her life being distracted by electronics( the computer, phone, video games), the young girl finds herself alone in her room. When she picks up a crayon to draw and suddenly her boring lifeless room is transformed into a complete journey. Her creativity gets flowing; she no longer is stuck in the room, but she travels to the places she imagines. This art expression transforms her mindset completely. Whereas before she sat on her bed looking lonely and forgotten, now she immerses herself in a beautiful wooded forest, floating down the river in a boat, entering a new city with a castle, and even floating in the sky. Her world was only as contained as her creativity! If you like "Book" by George Ella Lyons you will like this captivating and imaginative journey.

The scenes showing her family absorbed in their electronics could have been left out of the story. It would have still been a story about creating your own adventure and showing the power of expression through art. BUT these strong beginning scenes immediately grab the readers' attention with the "oh yeah, I do that" feeling. We need wake up calls like this to remind us to be intentional with our time and with our loved ones. ( )
