That's a great book, I read it forwards and backwards during a long trip abroad; it was, I guess, my gateway drug for programming language implementation. It predates Haskell and a lot of bells and whistles that came afterwards, but it gives you a good idea of how things are done, as well as how to think about these things.
Here's another, slightly more modern one by the very same: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/simonpj/papers/pj-lester-book/
Maybe someone should translate that one to Haskell as a 2nd edition.
