The Mysteries of Harris Burdick

By Chris Van Allsburg

A stunningly unique picture book for all ages, which encourages creative writing and the imagination from the two time Caldecott medal winner, Chris Van Allsburg.

"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.

  • "The perfect book for stimulating children's creative writing...a unique picture book with a brilliant premise." - Anthony Browne, Children's Laureate
  • First publication in paperback anywhere in the world.
  • The Polar Express has sold over 5 million copies worldwide, including 50,000 in the UK alone.
