Return (Aaron Becker)

(Sequel to Journey and Quest)
Aaron Becker
Fiction, YA Picture Book
****+ (Good/Great)

DESCRIPTION: When her busy father ignores her, a girl draws a door on her wall and returns to the world beyond, where art and color come alive and where she's a hero. Her father follows, and finds himself swept up in the adventure when a new enemy attacks.

REVIEW: I saw this go through the library today, and had to grab a copy for a quick read as I worked. Like the first two books, Return tells a great, imaginative story with no words needed. This time, a grown-up joins the action along with the girl and her friend from the previous tales. Her father helps, but doesn't overwhelm or try to take control from the children. As for the world beyond the door, it remains as wild and wondrous as ever, with page-filling images bursting with color.
