There is always a path guiding tour way back home This is the most adorable picture book I have ever read. The illustrations were super cute and I loved the story of a boy trying to find its way back home!

The Only Child is a wordless children's graphic novel that's magical in every way.

The beautiful and detailed illustrations tell a stunning story. One of the best graphic novels for children we've read!

This wordless novel is a pure treasure. Each picture is so beautifully illustrated with what looks like the simple strokes of a pencil. Each image conveys a different feeling and emotion. Shows children that words are not always necessary to express feelings. I would recommend this story! ( )

Gorgeously drawn, the soft monochromic matte illustrations of this wordless book is beautifully thoughtful with a slight twist that'll compel you "read" it all again immediately. Knowing the context for the setting of the book does make it slightly more heart-wrenching for the adults but kids can also enjoy the journeys - real and imaginative - of the eponymous character. There are some good lessons - on history and being alert to clues in your environment - to be learnt here too and its wordless aspect makes it a good exercise in imagination for children. ( )

Left on her own one day when her mother and father must go to work, the titular 'only child' in this gorgeous wordless picture-book sets out to visit her grandmother, only to fall asleep on the bus-ride there. Waking up far too late, the girl disembarks and soon finds herself lost in the woods. When a beautiful stag approaches, she finds a friend and a guide, one who takes her on a fantastic voyage to a far-removed land in the clouds. Here she meets another friend, and together the three pass an extraordinary time, resting on fluffy clouds, being swallowed and disgorged by a massive cloud whale, and sitting contentedly together. When the little cloud creature is reunited with his mother, our human heroine is returned by her stag guardian to her own parents, but she takes something of her friend with her...

An astonishingly beautiful book, The Only Child was apparently inspired by an episode in artist Guojing's own lonely childhood in China, in which she got lost on her way to her grandmother's house. In the book, this results in a magical experience, one in which loneliness is relieved and solitude broken by means of a journey connecting heaven and earth. The stag is such an enchanting figure here, so wise and loving, and although there are no words, the bond of love and affection that the little girl forms with him is deftly communicated by the artwork. I was reminded of the ancient elk who acts as a guide to the children in Pat O'Shea's marvelous Irish fantasy, The Hounds of the Morrigan, and that is high praise indeed! This is the sort of book that rewards each rereading, revealing little details of image and meaning upon each perusal. Recommended to anyone who appreciate beautifully illustrated picture-books, and to those looking for children's stories featuring enchanted journeys and our connection to the fantastic. ( )
