2011 Award
The Chronicles Of Harris Burdick, 14 Amazing Authors Tell the Tales
( by Chris Van Allsburg, et al, Candlewick $24.99 Score: )

Ever since the original book with it's mysterious illustrations with strange titles first appeared in 1984, it has set off the imaginations of young and old readers alike. Indeed, teachers and parents have used the pages of that book as a springboard to storytelling. Now, the torch has been passed to fourteen well-known authors. Each has used an illustration and given us their original story to go with the art. Some are funny, some scary, and all written by creative minds such as Jules Feiffer, Kate DiCamillo, Lois Lowry, Jon Sciezka, Walter Dean Myers and more. This does not replace having kids spin their own stories, but this is an interesting collection that may well inspire the young writer in your midst.
