    A beautiful book with illustrations that create a Miyazaki-like world of adventure. There is no text in the book, but that did not take away from the story at all. I highly recommend to children and adults alike.

    JOURNEY is a wordless picture book, so there is no text to write

    JOURNEY is a wordless picture book, so there is no text to write about, but there very much is a story. And the story is wonderful.  It's pretty simple: A young girl feels ignored by her family, so she creates a door to her own adventure.  I don't see this as an indictment against her family in any way; I see this as showing the benefit of allowing children to get bored so that they will use their imagination. 
    This book does pay homage to several books, most obviously Harold and the Purple Crayon, but I also saw traces of The Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Phantom Tollbooth, 1001 Arabian Nights, and just about anything that Jules Verne wrote.  The homage feels almost like a love letter to the fantastic children's literature of the past.
    The artwork in this book is heart-stoppingly beautiful.  It is marvelous and magical.  It is enchanting and engaging.  It is accessible and just plain awesome.  This was Aaron Becker's first book.  I can't wait to see what he does next.

    I was drawn to this book and purchased it for my 30 year old daughter... This was a story that she could have told. Her imagination was always vivid and full of life. She was delighted when she found this tucked into a box I sent for Easter. Wonder wonder illustrations that will take you wherever you want to go. Enjoy!

    It's a keeper!  Delightful to watch my 4yo study the pictures and explain the story to me.  On the practical side...he loves that he can "read" this story by himself and I often find him holed up with it. :)

    Just stunning!  What a great way for children to retell a story using their imagination and making their own inferences.  This will become a children's classic.

    Outstanding!

    This book has a wonderful story told in amazing illustrations. I am sure it will be receiving more awards in the future. It already has the NYTimes Best Illustrated Children's Book Award. I kept sharing this book with everyone I knew from co-workers to children. The story gets better and better with each read as more details unfold. It will be a family treasure.

    This book is a Must for every child's library!

    This book allows your child to explore a world of fantasy and adventure through their own point of view without the distraction of another's words.
