This remarkable retelling of the classic novel, by the awarding-winning children's author Geraldine McCaughrean, bring Bunyan's story to life for a generation of young readers. McCaughrean neatly draws the drama out, gradually allowing the reader to conclude that Christian is not so different from latter day heroes after all. The engaging contemporary illustrations by Jason Cockcroft bring an added poignancy to the story of a youth with a mission in life. Included 56 black and white and 19 color illustrations. Recommended for ages 7 to 12.
