The little fly lives in the backyard of a nice house in the countryside. Sure there are bins filled with lovely smelly food leftovers, but the yard isn't very big. There's a very high green hedge at the end of it and our wee fly has never dared to fly over it and to look what lies beyond.
And so, day in, day out, it's just the same old, same old, for the tiny insect.
What's more, he's quite lonely. Of course, other flies live in the yard, too, but they are from different species and don't humm the same humm and look quite different. They are not as colourful, rather grey or brown or even speckled.
The fly is really very sad as there's no one to talk to and every new day just comes with the same boring routine. All he's left with are his dreams of a different life, a life with friends and interesting things to do.

One day the fly decides to pluck up all his courage and go for it. He flies higher and higher and higher still and finally he has reached the top of the hedge. And once he's on top of the hedge, he might as well fly a bit further, as there are so many new things to discover.
Soaring excitedly through the air he suddenly sees something in the distance what looks like a big silvery bird. He flies closer and feeling brave, he flies inside. But the doors close and he's trapped. The plane takes off and now the fly is on his way to a faraway land.
What will he find when the plane finally lands? Will the food be different? Will flies live there? And was it all worth the trouble?

Journey into the Unknown is a wonderful picture book which tells us all, no matter if young or old, if we want our dreams to come true, we need to be courageous and go for it. It might be strenuous and determination is needed, but there is a life out there waiting, go grab it with both hands.
The illustrations are very beautiful and bright watercolour paintings and children will love them. The text is a bit small and I wished for a different font size, but that is really the only criticism I've got.
It's a lovely story with such an important an encouraging message. Highly recommended. ( )
