The Journey

This book is amazingly written and illustrated by Francesca Sanna. The expressive illustrations in the book are so detailed and understanding and go with the structure of the story very well. Francesca has the ability to tell the story just by her drawings and variation of colours throughout the book.
The story of the book is based on an adventure of a mother with her two children going on a journey far away to get away from the war after they find out how dangerous the war is after their dad dies in the war.
My opinion of this book is that it is an incredibly powerful story and I have noticed that Francesca Sanna has varied the colour scheme from bright colours to dark and mysterious colours. I would recommend this book to ages of 10 to 12 or just anyone who loves adventure as much as I do
