I love the Haggadah with Gadi Pollacks illustrations. The artwork is beautiful.

Not sure how much commentary there is...

ETA: this is the one:

IIRC, the 'commentary' is that the illustrations are fairly comprehensive in depicting of things described in midrashim and other divrei chazal. I think it even has sources in the back.

That has been the typical format of the books they have done together.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Yes Sir!

 And besides for the Rav shach Haggadah which I know you went through cover to cover, what other Haggadah you use?
  Or rather which one did you use this past year?

Since you seem to be in love with it, it must be good, which one are we talking about?

Just seeing this again now that the thread has been bumped. My grandfather got my kids the Pollack megillas esther this year. Such a brilliant piece. Beside the fact that the structure - showing the megilla as a play on a stage with a fixed set - is great for showing the story to kids, the metaphor of the megillah as a play, with the playwright/director determining what goes on from behind the scenes - is just brilliant.
