This is perhaps my favorite children's book and may be the book the has had the greatest influence on my taste in artwork and design. On a purely literary level, it's an adaptation of Pilgrim's Progress, though the unique aspect of this version is that it uses selections from the original rather than modernizing the language. So, it's really more of an abridgement. But what really stands out in this book is the artwork. Each page of text, which really does not amount to more than a paragraph, has a beautiful illustration on the facing page. Many of the illustrations are quite grotesque, but I like that :)
