I am undecided on this one. I think Jon Muth is amazing and his Zen books are some of my favorites. I appreciate his efforts with these classic lyrics, and I think he's done about a good a job as anyone could in illuminating them for a young audience. I especially liked the guitar motif as a nod to the folk singers who have sung this song.

But ultimately, I'm not sure this is the type of song that SHOULD be illustrated, as I think some of the power of the song over the years has been in how each singer or listener builds their own meaning of the words.
