The Journey

This is a beautiful book, and timely. The sparse language is contrasted yet complemented by the bold illustrations that contain both realistic and metaphorical depictions of journeying. The pictures convey a fairy tale feel to a story we know is all too real, which is caught in glimpses not expressed in the text, such as the telling moment when the mother is pictured crying as her children tell us she "is never scared."

It is simple and profound and leaves us hanging in the middle of an incomplete journey to potential safety.
