With haunting echoes of the current refugee crisis this beautifully illustrated book explores the unimaginable decisions made as a family leave their home and everything they know in order to escape the turmoil and tragedy brought by war. Written and illustrated by Francesca Sanna, this book is the result of her experience of meeting two little girls in a refugee centre in Italy. Struck by the power of their journeys, Sanna began collecting further stories, pulling together poignant moments to create this moving and important work. The Journey is Italian illustrator and graphic designer Francesca Sanna's first picture book and was met with high acclaim, receiving several literary awards.
