Illustrated Friday: The Mysteries of Harris Burdick
This is one of the most unique books I've come across. I remember being introduced to this book in the eighth grade, when we used the illustrations as writing prompts. Each page is just one beautiful, wild illustration, and the only text is a title or sentence starter. Chris Van Allsburg always has great illustrations, but this is a great one to use to get your own stories started or to encourage young writers. Happy Friday!
