  • "Fantasy fiction. Short Stories. This inspired collection of short stories is based on the original illustrations of Chris Van Allsburg in his esteemed and mysterious The Mysteries of Harris Burdick, and features many remarkable, best-selling authors in the worlds of 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. Van Allsburg's Harris Burdick illustrations have evoked such wonderment and imagination since Harris Burdick's original publication in 1984; many have speculated or have woven their own stories to go with his images. More than ever, the illustrations send off their eerie call for text and continue to compel and pick at the reader's brain for a backstory, a threaded tale behind the image. In this book, we've collected some of the best storytellers to spin them."

  • "For more than twenty-five years, readers have been puzzling over the illustrations by the enigmatic artist, calling himself Harris Burdick. Thirty years ago this man called at the office of Peter Wenders, who worked for a children's book publisher, choosing the stories and pictures that would be turned into books. Mr Burdick explained that he had written fourteen stories and had drawn many pictures for each one. He'd brought with him just one drawing from each story to see if Wenders liked his work. Peter Wenders was fascinated by the drawings and told Burdick he would like to read the stories that went with them as soon as possible. The artist agreed to bring the stories the next morning. However he never returned and has never been found. To this day Harris Burdick remains a mystery. Filling in for Harris Burdick is an esteemed collection of highly decorated authors."@en
