Waterstones Says

A breathtakingly illustrated masterwork that allows readers' imaginations free rein, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick presents a series of stunning images and captions which open up a myriad of possible stories.

"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.

"Extremely puzzling as well as stimulating . . . Certainly an invitation for individual interpretations and expansions in almost any media." - The School Librarian
