Way back in 1913 or so, Robert Louis Stevenson captured a child's dream life in the classic poem "The Land of Nod." In its latest manifestation, the poem provides the text for Robert Hunter's children's book, The Land of Nod. Hunter's illustrations are colorful, timeless, and appropriately bizarre. The little boy's adventures, intended or not, reminded my of the boy in Where the Wild Things Are.
The illustrations are interesting enough to make the rehashing of the classic poem worth putting on paper. Pay a visit to dreamland, the Land of Nod.
