The Chronicles of Harris Burdick: Fourteen Amazing Authors Tell the Tales by Chris Van Allsburg, 195 pages, read by Angie, on 02/13/2013

The Mysteries of Harris Burdick is an interesting, different book. Supposedly, Harris Burdick left a collection of illustrations with captions and promised stories to go along with them. He disappeared forever with his stories. Several of the best writers for children and teens took up the challenge of writing stories to fit the illustrations. This book contains stories by Chris Van Allsburg, MT Anderson, Kate DiCamillo, Stephen King and more. As I was reading this I kept thinking of the old Twilight Zone episodes. Each of these stories is a little off, a tad bit strange or downright weird just like The Twilight Zone
