These simple 19th century allegories have some value but mostly are lesser renditions of thems in Pilgrims Progress. In this collection of seven stories there are really two stories retold in only slightly altered ways. The call to trust Christ is made clear, so there is value but so many other books do this in such a better way.  My boys tired of the book quickly because of the repetition and the lack of subtlety.
