We need more..

Recently I read two illustrated novels back to back:

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 
w/ Camille Rose Garcia’s illustrations 

 A Monster Calls

And I’ve come to the conclusion that there needs to be more novels like this.
I don’t mean picture books or comics or graphic novels, all of which I love, read & own.
I mean just proper novels with illustrations.

journal page w/ a few of my favourite things: like the awesome illustrations in A Monster Calls <3

 These were both library books that I think I'm going to have to buy now lol

Another illustrated novel I am dying to get my hands on is:

Because Frankenstein is one of my favourite books and Gris Grimly is one of my favourite illustrators. :)
And evidently, this version keeps the original text of the novel & just adds Gris Grimly's awesome illustrations. 
(Which would make it probably an easier read for people who aren't already obsessed with the book like I am. Garcia's illustrations helped me get thru Alice in Wonderland- a book I've started & not finished more than once..)

Do you know of any other illustrated novels I should check out?
