I was blown away by this book, mostly because I have used "The Mysteries of Harris Burdick" in class. I had anticipated using this book in conjunction, first having the students write their own story as I have done in the past, then reading the published story, but I believe that this book is a bit dark for elementary students. I will, however, pass the idea on to my high school English teacher sister.
I enjoyed reading the different stories (one per picture) written by well-known authors. It would have been fun to not know which author wrote which story, as I think I would have been able to figure out most of them based on style.
