The Journey

I really enjoyed reading and looking at this book. The way that Francesca metaphorically used the hands and the big and small characters is very clever and the colours really matched the moods of the book.
This book is (in my opinion) a great way of getting across the hardship of the life of a refugee to the younger age group. I also think that the style of the drawings is very original.
I recommend this book for an 8 to 12 year old because the subjects are quite advanced. My rating is 8 out of 10 because sometime some of the pictures are irrelevant as they have got nothing to do with the story. Younger readers could read it as it is sugar coated so that they would understand it although 8 to 12 year old would understand it properly, for the story and the meaning is quite advanced.
