Journey – Aaron Becker
5th November 2018 @ 8:00 am - 9th November 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Hollywood are going on a journey, a journey of imagination, of challenges and of the unknown.
Children across Hollywood are coming together to explore a fabulous wordless picture book. The story tells a tale of a girl who is bored. Bored, bored, bored, bored, bored. With her mom cooking and yakking on the phone, her dad glued to his computer and her older sister consumed by some kind of electronic handheld device, there’s no one to play with.
But when the girl’s cat reveals itself to have been sitting on a bright red writing implement (is it a marker, a crayon, or chalk?), she knows immediately what to do. A door is drawn on the wall of her room and passing through it instantly yields a glorious lantern lit world, replete with tall green trees and a meandering stream.
When the girl draws a boat with which to explore the stream she is drawn into a massive water-driven city full of friendly residents, canals, and locks.
An accidental slip over the side causes her to draw a hot air balloon and all is well until she spots a beautiful purple bird. Pursued by a relentless villain, the creature is caught and caged.
Our heroine attempts a daring rescue but is caught herself in the attempt. Fortunately, things turn out well in the end and she finds that maybe in her humdrum drab little world at home there’s someone else there willing to share an adventure or two.
The children of Hollywood will write her about her adventures along the way in an amazing fusion of adventure and imagination.
