“For the ones who have explored the unknown. The ones who’ve learned, the ones who’ve grown.” Into the Unknown, by Christopher DePietro, is an adventure that children are sure to love. A young boy, Micah, dreams of being an explorer but finds little adventure in his own backyard. One day, however, Micah comes across a small door that leads him into an unknown place. Micah needs to face his fears and temptation to run and turn back in order to pass through tests and tribulations so that he can reach the treasure at the end of his journey, a treasure that is not at all what Micah expected. Into the Unknown is beautifully illustrated with full, vibrant images that are sure to captivate young readers and keep their attention and excitement.
I found DePietro’s work to be very creative and fun, a mysterious adventure that children are sure to love. Micah had to persevere through his fears when he entered into the unknown, prove himself through trials and tests, and learn a valuable lesson about himself along the way. I think the message of the story is very important for children, and it is delivered by DePietro in an exciting and adventurous way that is not accomplished by your typical book. Author Christopher DePietro is responsible for the exceptional writing and illustration of this enthralling children’s book. Overall, Into the Unknown is a unique story that children are sure to love and learn from. Nice work!
