From Our Editors

 Beautiful and strange, with all the qualities of a most fascinating dream, Chris Van Allsburg’s most distinctive picture book offers those who open its covers a chance to soar in the imagination — and delve into a delightfully strange mystery. Based on the premise that the man who had written the story vanished without trace, leaving only 14 pictures with the publisher, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick begins with a conundrum and ends any way the reader chooses. With captions and titles serving as the only text, this black-and-white masterpiece allows children free rein to interpret the images, while challenging them to draw the scenarios together in some cohesive form. Above all else, this award-winning picture book contains startling, lovely drawings that show the artist’s craft to perfection.
