I created a unit on Chris Van Allsburg's books. Over time, I added books that I did not have. This was in the second wave, as I recall.

I read this to my class and asked them to focus on the perspective of the text and the images. Notice how the text conjures certain images in the reader's head. When the images were shared, one could see the "true" meaning.

Good writers can control the reader.
