Review

"This beautifully designed book has large, heavy pages, each divided into two columns by a single, scarlet line. Moser’s watercolor paintings, mainly portraits of the characters dressed in clothing from many eras and places, thoughtfully interpret the text. A beautiful edition, recommended for any library with an audience for the classics." — Booklist

"If any earthly power can restore Pilgrim’s Progress to the children’s library, this handsome version ought to do it." — New York Times Book Review

"This masterly rendition of Bunyan’s 17th century allegory issues a welcome invitation to visit this classic. . . . [Christian’s] run-ins with an assortment of unsavory characters, monsters, seers and benevolent guides are brilliantly depicted in Moser’s watercolor illustrations, which mirror the agelessness of Bunyan’s moral. Author and illustrator produce a treasure sure to delight." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The text is beautifully illustrated with Moser’s colorful, realistic watercolors. . . . An interesting, accessible version of an old classic that many YAs have heard about, but not all have read." — School Library Journal
