About the book:

Award-winning author Geraldine Mccaughrean tackles John Bunyon's classic story with a charm and poise that successfully breathe life into the ancient chronicle of a young man called Christian as he undertakes the journey of a lifetime to the City of Gold.

As a revered and well-worn tale, A Pilgrim's Progress may seem at odds with the modernity of current children's writing, but it has in fact all the elements that make a child really sit up and take notice--drama, excitement and adventure.

Partnered by Jason Cockcroft, whose startling contemporary illustrations contrast with the age-old fable and bring an added poignancy to the story of a youth with a mission in life. McCaughrean neatly draws the drama out, gradually allowing the reader to conclude that Christian is not so different from latter day heroes after all.

A stunning, complex retelling of a classic story, this exciting and unusual version of The Pilgrim's Progress is both comprehensive and remarkable as it brings a centuries-old yarn bang up to date for the thoroughly modern reader without losing any of the spirit of Bunyan's original work. (Age 10 and over) --Susan Harrison
