The Journey, Francesca Sanna


2nd April 2016 | by Rachael Rogan

Amazing new book alert! ‘The Journey’ by Francesca Sanna is a wonderfully crafted tale of a family escaping their war torn homeland in search of safety. The story, told in the simple clear voice of a child, combines with the incredible illustrations to pack a real emotional punch. A truly breathtaking work of art. This book provides a wonderful way to explain the experience of refugees from war torn countries to children and adults, in an immediately accessible way.
