The Journey by Francesca Sanna

Winner of the Amnesty CILIP Honour 2017


Francesca Sanna’s picture book The Journey – which tells the story of a family forced to flee their home because of war – has won the Honour in the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal category. 


With haunting echoes of the current refugee crisis this beautifully illustrated picture book explores the unimaginable decisions made as a family leave their home and everything they know to escape the turmoil and tragedy brought by war. Based on her interactions with people forced to seek a new home, and told from the perspective of a young child, Francesca Sanna has created a beautiful and sensitive book that is full of significance for our time. This book will stay with you long after the last page is turned.
