Dante's Journey An Infernal Adventure by Virginia Jewiss, Christiana Castenetto

Loosely based on Dante's Inferno , with its famous scenes involving monsters, demons, and rivers of fire and ice, twelve illustrations and accompanying text in verse chart the nighttime journey of an adventurous kid and his toy Virgil. 'Midway through the night young Dante awoke. He hugged his toy Virgil and sighed as he spoke. 'My mom and my dad, they make me so mad, They holler and tell me I'm being bad. I'm sure they'll find something I did wrong today, And so I've been thinking - let's both run away!'.
