There are some books which are famous all over the world. First of all I guess it's Bible. But there are many others. I would like to mention Winnie the Pooh. It's a book equally known in Russia and in English speaking countries. But how the appearance of the little bear differs in our countries?
Here's Disnay's Winnie
And here's Russian version (((:
Winnie and his Friend
and other characters
Note that Tigra character for some reason is not presented in Russian cartoon. (Soviet actually).
