When I was a kid, this probably was my favorite book of all time.
Way before I set foot on the stage, I remember holding a one man "play" on this book for my parents on the expanded hearth of our fireplace in Ms. Even when we moved to Monroe, I remember doing a daily story-telling of this book for my little brothers, using old felt stick-ons as props that my Dad had for us years earlier. That being said, I have nothing but fond memories over this book and have been looking forward to re-reading it for years but never made the time to do so until now.
After doing so however I noticed it's not a good without the illustrations. About every version I had of this, came with illustrations which really brought the story for life. But the classic memories from the book still remain.
The Worldly Wiseman, Christian's fight with Apollyon, his capture in Doubting Castle and several other stories are what brought my imagination to life as a kid.
For those interesting in reading it I would highly suggest getting a children's or illustrated version of the book before reading. It's much better that way.
So, what's next on my book list? Check out next week's post to see...

Great stuff. It plays like a Winnie the Pooh tale but with more depth to the characters. The story of Mole, Rat, Badger and of course, Mr Toad are interesting the whole read thru.
I'd recommend the book (especially if illistrated) to anyone with kids who are looking for a good read. It's extrememly funny at times and the re-reading it again since my childhood brought back memories of why this book was one of my favorites back in the day.
Finishing up my next book now. Expect a review on it tomorrow!

This may be another short playoff season for my team.
In other news, the Mets played like a professional little league team on ESPN and lost to Cards 6-3
It's going to be a loooooong season!
