The Mysteries of Harris Burdick (Portfolio Edition) - Chris Van Allsburg Bought this when it was published in the 80s, when I was at the height of my obsession with picture books. Loved it. I never wrote any stories from it. I think I just didn't want to have anything definitive in my mind when I looked at those pictures. Once I wrote a story, it would be harder to be open to other possibilities.
