Quest, the second book in Becker's Journey trilogy, was among a small group of children's books praised by National Public Radio (NPR) in anticipation of the announcement of the 2015 Caldecott Award nominees. Sam Juliano, in his popular Wonders in the Dark blog, also remarked on Quest's likelihood of Caldecott attention.
