Have you heard of Little Pilgrim’s Progress? It’s the children’s version of the John Bunyan classic by Helen L. Taylor. Recently, Joe Sutphin made an illustrated version with animal characters. James D. Witmer, author of The Strange New Dog, has written a review of this book. I haven’t read Sutphin’s version myself, but I like the samples of the book’s illustrations. The rabbit is the perfect choice to play Christian, as the rabbit captures the image of a fearful yet loveable creature. I assume the owl on the book’s cover is supposed to be the Evangelist. If it is, even though the “wise owl” is an overused caricature, the owl is a nice choice as children can relate to this caricature.
