Description - The Voyage by Robert Vescio

Displaced by war and conflict, a refugee family sets out on a voyage into the unknown. Told in only a few words (one word per page) this is the powerful story of a family fleeing their war-torn country and making a dangerous trip across the ocean to a new life in a new land. 'Chaos' begins the story, as the family escapes. 'Wild' is the midway point, as the small boat battles through a storm. 'Companion' marks the sighting of a whale that briefly keeps them company as their voyage continues. 'Beauty' is the sight of a green, beautiful land ahead of them. 'Safe' is the beginning of their new life in their new home. Simple, yet evocative, The Voyage gives new meaning to the phrase 'a picture is worth a thousand words', as Robert Vescio's sparse text and Andrea Edmond's beautiful illustrations encourage young readers to create their own background story and thus identify more deeply with the plight of refugees and those less fortunate.
