The Land of Nod by Robert Hunter

Mr. Hunter's illustrations of this classic tale by Robert Louis Stevenson is lovely.  As the poem moves along, the graphics take you on the journey this young one takes in his mind...

Flying Eye Books sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can grab a copy now.

The boy in the story has broken his leg and uses crutches to get around.  When he goes to bed at night, he's well in his dream and travels about the land.  Children's dreams can be great fantasy and this boy is really good at it.  Mr. Hunter's illustrations help you visualize the journey the text takes you on.

This would be a good bedtime story or a good gift for those who are sick and bored with staying still.  It might inspire them to travel in their dreams also.  Robert Lewis Stevenson always writes good poems, so you can't go wrong there.  The artwork might inspire some drawing, too.  I was impressed with this edition of this work.
