The Chronicles of Harris Burdick – Chris Van Allsburg

chronicles harris burdickThis book presents a series of enigmatically titled and captioned monochrome drawings, which, if the introduction is to be believed, are the work of a shadowy artist who had abandoned them at a publisher’s office, never to return.   Chris Van Allsburg asked famous authors to write their own stories inspired by the drawings.  Each contribution has its own flavour of menace, allowing us to discover our favourites.  Mysterious, funny, creepy, poignant—these are tales you won’t soon forget written by authors from both adult and children’s literature: Sherman Alexie, M. T. Anderson, Kate DiCamillo, Cory Doctorow, Jules Feiffer, Stephen King, Tabitha King, Lois Lowry, Gregory Maguire, Walter Dean Myers, Linda Sue Park, Louis Sachar, Jon Scieszka, Lemony Snicket, and Chris Van Allsburg himself.
