The Widow's Broom is another children's picture book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg. Just like Zathura and Probuditi, The Widow's Broom is presented with a portrait layout. But, unlike the other two, the illustrations in this book do not go from one page to another, so it is truly a portrait layout. The illustrations are extremely realistic and they are done in black and white with a thick border on each page. All of these Van Allsburg books seem to be for the older child, with somewhat intense illustrations. But the imaginative stories make the books fun for any reader.
