His disappearance is not the only mystery left behind. What were the stories that went with these drawings? There are some clues... Who is Harris Burdick? Where did he disappear to? And how was he going to finish his stories? Chris Van Allsburg presents a series of loosely related drawings each accompanied by a title and a caption which the reader may use to make up his or her own story. This is a book for those who have thought of themselves as unimaginative.

"A must-have, with a curious set of images to stimulate the imagination of young and old... Every school will want this extraordinary book." * The Bookseller * "Allsburg's soft back and white illustrations have a dream-like quality manipulating light, perspective and texture to create unsettling drawings. The stories mix interiors and exteriors, portraits and landscapes, all full of wonder and mysteries to be solved." * Booktrust * "Every page tantalises, sparks ideas, plays with your mind, intrigues and inspires." * The Bookbag * "Extremely puzzling as well as stimulating . . . Certainly an invitation for individual interpretations and expansions in almost any media." * The School Librarian * "An innovative and useful book, especially for using as stimulus for young people's writing." * Armadillo Magazine *

This is a great resource for teachers looking for creative writing inspiration ideas. We used it as part of our narratives unit. Note that is book is only the drawings. You can also get one that has the stories written by various authors. The book is about A4 size

This is one of my favourite books. I have used it many times as a stimulus for my students' writing. They love the mystery surrounding the story. Brilliant
