Synopsis
'Displaced by war and conflict, a refugee family sets out on a dangerous voyage into the unknown. This near wordless picture book (one word per page) and evocative illustrations, combine powerfully to encourage young readers to create their own background story and thus identify more deeply with the plight of refugees and those less fortunate'.

Thank you so much, Nadia and Laurel.

This is a story I that rings familiar to me based on my friends' experiences fleeing war torn countries. The message is clear and poignant. Beautiful illustrations and heartfelt trailer. We need to keep telling these stories of survival, determination, and the human condition.

'The spares text used in The Voyage, will help to put things into a context that will make sense to children. It’s simple and thought-provoking and shows the different stages of a refugee family fleeing their home in search of another country to start a new life'.
