Journey by Aaron Becker



This is a beautifully illustrated story which is told without words. A lonely girl finds a red crayon and uses it to draw a door into an adventure. The scenery is in subtle monochrome while the magic elements appear in red or purple: the boat, the balloon, the bird and the magic carpet. This quiet and cinematic book was a 2014 Caldecott honor book.
