Hello Miss Ale,

I think the book is very strange and I think this book is for artists to inspire in their drawings. I also wanted to say that you wrote wrong the title: instead of Burdick, you wrote Burdickfv.

See you tomorrow,

Hello Miss Ale:
I think that the book is like an inspiration to children, adults and writers to create their own stories using the pictures. And I think that Chris Van Allsburg should public a story with all the short stories invented by the "readers". I think that we should create our own story with these images...

Hello Miss Alee,
I think that the book might be intresting if you get a chance to get a look good at it. And as most of us said it is very inspirational for other artists or people. To encourage them to do what they want, of course in a artist carreer. Have a good day.

Miss Alejandraa:
I think the book is grate, because it is for us to imagen in the photo what's written in the text. This book is very strange, because it doesn't have chpters nither paragraphs, and usually in all the books I read there are chapters. Each photo didn't relate with any other.
Lots of kissess

Hello Miss Ale,
I watched the images and I think that they are really strange, as I don´t know the book I don´t understand the pictures very well. But it looks as if the book talks about something that has happened a long time ago. Also it looks as if it isn´t a very cheerful story, that it doesn´t have a happy ending.
See you tomorrow

Image 15 was the one the one that impressed me more and I think that this image was totally different because it had a "boat-train" which they used to cross a river, a pond or what ever.

Hello Miss Ale,
I really liked the imagines and the aclarations. The difference with the books we read are that these ones in a sentence tells the book and the normal book in 100 pages showes the book. Also that in many books that we read now they have NO images and these one even has one! Well now the only thing that is left is to CHECK the fantasy story!!

Hello Miss Ale,
I think this fotos are good. Seeing this fotos I can imagine a fantasy story or like a terror story. This book looks strange but interesting. This drawings or fotos look hard to prepare so they made a hard work on it. I think this story is defferent because our books have very few fotos and this one is like good fotos and it represent a part of it on it's fotos because seeing this you can see how much did people work on it.Good Bye

Hello Miss Ale:
I liked the story, ans I think that is different from the ones that we are reading recently because the story that tells about the drawings can happend in real life. i liked a ñot the book but I had already seen those images and I already knew the story, well I think I knew it all exept for the part of the letter that is sent to the one that is telling you the story. I think that they read it to us in library a long time a go.
Bye. See you tomorow, sofi 6c

Domi said...

Hello miss ale,
I remember seeing this book in the library and also doing some work about it. What I noticed was that the illustrations are in black and white and only at the beginning there is a little bit of text, the part that the text would occupy in a normal book is occupied by an image. This book is very nice...
See you

Hi miss ale,
I think this fantastic book which I like very much they had already read to us in libary. Also each group had to continue writing about one image, cause I remember it was the one of a ship that appears when a man moves a lamp
I think that this images are very strange and you have something inside you that you want to see what happens next!

Hello Miss Ale,
the book just by seeing the photos it imideatly says to you that it is a fantasy story, it looks interesting.

Mili said...

Hello Miss Ale,

I think this artist is very good at making drawings. They look very real but really they are not, they are simply cartoons or drawings that aren't real. This book is very strange because it has drawings and in the ones we have read they did not have (the variety didn't have) Also I think the story is very boring because the drawings are in black and white...
See you tomorrow,

Hello Miss Ale:


I think this story is very strange because for the author is more important to write something clear and short and the show it in photo. The images of this book are very good and you could understand it with short and clear sentence of the author. To compare the books that we read at school are more detailed and not so telling and they are showing. It is a very strange this book.
Keep posting this post.

Hello Miss Ale

I think this book is very strange and interesting also the pictures were very well drawn and I think the author took long to paint them and it can give ideas to other artists. I also noticed that the illustrations are in black and white. I also remember have seeng this book in the library two or three weeks ago.

See you tomorrow Tomas Y 6c

Hello Miss Ale, I saw the slide show it was great. And the introducction traps you a lot and you want to read the book at once!
For me the photos were the exact photo for that sentence, that there isn´t anotherone to much with it.
For me the sentences were very original, I liked them.
the blog is great...keep on posting
ps: I liked the video that you showed us today was great!!!

Hi Ale I read the introduction but I didn´t understand very well the ending of the story but I think that Mr. Burdick left the images so that people could get inspired and write there one books . I think the images some were strange but they were very well drawn. The story was good but a little bit strange .
Thank You , I liked the idea of the post.

the drawings were definitely fantasy!The difference between the stories we read and these stories is that they were not written by one person, they were written by many.

Miss Ale,
In my opinion I have an image or something similar to this book. I think that it is not a book that is new, maybe it has his years! There are lots of illustrations and they are black and white, and it has more images than text, in the pictures there are very little text, many images and only the introduction is quite long comparing the other texts. The book is like interesting and I would love to have a chance to read it or know something more about it.

Hello Miss Ale

This is a really wierd book. It is different than what we are used to becasue: it is about a real man who draws some things and the only thing we see are the images and the titles. We are used to a book with very little images.

Hello Miss Ale,

I think that this book tries to say that maybe people like to help others in there one special way. Like the ilustrator did when he gave the drawings to the writer, he did it to inspire the writer to publish the book.
Well I hope I understood well!

Hello Miss Ale,
I think that this stories are very strange and mysterious.The drawings he made were very good.They looked like the ones that appear in the movies.They look SO real!!As if the characters were going to get out of the drawing.One of my favourite drawings was the one of the girl who fell asleep with the open book.Mr Burdick drew very well!
See you tomorrow,

Miss Ale,

I think that this book is diffrent from the others in lots of ways. One of those is that most books have lots of text and very little images. This book was the other way round. Also there was an image and then a quotation about the image. I did not like that, I would have preffared it only the image or the text appeared becuase I like imaginaiging what the picture will be like when I hear a sentence and I like my brain to analize a quotation by looking at the picture. I also think the introuduction is a very interasting story.
Lots of love

I think the book is very different at all the fantasy books we read, because we had to imagine the text because the only text which is shown in the presentation is the INTRODUCTION.
In a photo that the girl was about to cut the pumpkin first when I saw I thought she was about to cut somebody´s head. Then I realized that it was a pumpkin!!!

Hello Miss Ale,

I saw the pictures and I must tell that I didn´t understood some of them. Some are very dark and I can´t see correctly everything. I think that the slideshow sould be more especific and it sould try to narrate part of the story using pictures set in a cronological order.

Good post,

belu said...

hello miss ale
I think this book we read in the library once and was the most strange was that the pictures have nothing to do with the story so you have to imagine the story without basing your picture in your mind to the picture of the book. I remember that they gave us a picture and we had to invent a story with it but when the read the story to us it had nothing to do with the thing we wrote.

Hello miss ale,

I think that the book is very unusual, for what I think. It was a mix of fantasy and mistery, due to not knowing how the stories where. So, I think the same as did Peter Wenders, I want to read them right now!

Hi miss ale, sory for not blogging yesterday but i confused. anyway the story was frustrantly intrigant and interesting,not like every book i've read, but in the other hand yes. It was difficult to understand, and sometimes i wanted to stop reading but i wanted to know what happened, because it was not like that kind of books you can deduce, because you never know what will happen. about the photos, Those were very related to the title but lets face it if we didn't read that little text that was under the photos, we could never had find out.anyway the story was good

Hello Miss Ale!
I finally got the correct post!
If was seing the images and i really liked the one of the book a that a plant is coming out of it nd the one of the railwaay in the ocean/dessert. There is also one that freaked me out!the one of the chairs was pretty scary!haha
What I like about this images is that you can invent millions of stories with only one image.
The other thing that really impressed me what the story of this man who left the pictures and never came back!
See you in school!
