Aaron Becker dreamed of traveling to castles when he was a young boy. At age ten, he was lucky enough to visit the walled island of Mont Saint-Michel in France and, many years later, that visit inspired him to create the castle featured throughout the Journey trilogy. Aaron recently returned to Europe with his family, where he completed the watercolour paintings you see in this book. Aaron Becker lives in Massachusetts, USA with his wife and daughter.

Dazzling watercolours create an epic storytelling experience. * The Bookseller * This is a book to spend time over for sure, and to revisit over and over, with every reading adding to and enriching the whole amazing experience. It's one of those reading experiences that every child should have, an enormously rewarding journey that I urge you to give every child you know the opportunity to undertake * Red Reading Hub * This imaginative, fantastical escapade - the last in Aaron Becker's Caldecot-Honor-winning wordless trilogy - overflows with creativity. A spellbinding story where the stunning, shimmering pictures paint at least a thousand words. * Booktrust * A story without words which describes a fantastical journey only though images, colours and your own imagination. You'll pore over the pages, brilliant starting points for discussion with your child. Wonderful. * The Schoool Run .com * Told in lavishly detailed watercolour illustrations, with not a word of text, the story follows a girl who escapes her full home into a fantasy world where colour and imagination bring liberation. * FT Weekend * "Return is different and beautiful. Even without words the story is clear and those of any age who enjoy it will want to see Becker's previous two books in this trilogy, Journey and Quest." * Newbury Weekly News * "This is the final chapter in Aaron Becker's trilogy of beautiful wordless picture books. [...] a brilliant finale to the three-part series about the transformative power of the imagination." * The School Librarian *
