Failing to get the attention of her busy father, a lonely girl turns back to a fantastic world for friendship and adventure. It's her third journey into the enticing realm of kings and emperors, castles and canals, exotic creatures and enchanting landscapes. This time, it will take something truly powerful to persuade her to return home, as a gripping backstory is revealed that will hold readers in its thrall. Caldecott Honor winner Aaron Becker delivers a suspenseful and moving climax to his wordless trilogy, an epic that began with the award-winning Journey and continued with the celebrated follow-up Quest.
"This is the final chapter in Aaron Becker's trilogy of beautiful wordless picture books. [...] a brilliant finale to the three-part series about the transformative power of the imagination." The School Librarian "Return is different and beautiful. Even without words the story is clear and those of any age who enjoy it will want to see Becker's previous two books in this trilogy, Journey and Quest." Newbury Weekly News
