Becker's wordless narratives are amazing. What he does with pen-and-ink and watercolor not only creates action, intrigue, and adventure but also expresses a subtlety of emotion, all within a world of wonder and endless possibility. The more time readers spend poring over the details of the drawings, the more they will love his books.

The first book in this trilogy, Journey, won Caldecott honors, and Quest is as good -- or maybe even better. Readers who liked the first book will love the second, and they'll be excited that at least one more wordless adventure is promised.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
