A 2014 Caldecott Honor Book

Follow a girl on an elaborate flight of fancy in a wondrously illustrated, wordless picture book about self-determination — and unexpected friendship.


A lonely girl draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound. Red marker in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon, and a flying carpet that carry her on a spectacular journey toward an uncertain destiny. When she is captured by a sinister emperor, only an act of tremendous courage and kindness can set her free. Can it also lead her home and to her heart’s desire? With supple line, luminous color, and nimble flights of fancy, author-illustrator Aaron Becker launches an ordinary child on an extraordinary journey toward her greatest and most exciting adventure of all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply wonderful My 4 year old daughter was sad tonight because I couldn't read her a bedtime story. I have laryngitis, and I'm trying to get better. But she brought me this book, shouting triumphantly "You can read this book, Dada! It has no words!" I love this book. If you're looking for a book for a 4-6 year old imaginative boy or girl, I can't recommend this book highly enough. It has no words. It needs none. I've probably read this 8 times with my daughter, every time thinking that I've learned all of the story, only to discover a shadow of an image on a page which makes it just a little deeper. And, of course, you can read it even when you have laryngitis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I will keep this book forever, and hope that it can be passed on for generations. The book forces readers to use their imagination, and tell a wonderful story. To top it all off, the illustrations are just gorgeous.
