Editorial Reviews

Symphony Space education coordinator Madeline Cohen hosts this episode of Thalia Kids’ Book Club featuring noted children’s book author and illustrator Chris Van Allsburg, with additional creative contributions from celebrated young adult author John Scieszka.

Cohen is a bright and lively host, engaging Van Allsburg with thought-provoking questions about his lifelong passion for art, and his work on beloved children’s classics including Caldecott Medal winners Jumanji and The Polar Express. Scieszka, author of the best-selling Time Warp Trio series, also reads a story that he wrote based on an Allsburg illustration. Full of audience interaction and enthusiasm, this audiobook will prove fun for the whole family!

Publisher's Summary

The winner of two Caldecott Medals, for Jumanji and The Polar Express, talks about a new short story collection in which skilled storytellers such as Kate DiCamillo, Stephen King and Sherman Alexie spin imaginative tales inspired by the original illustrations from his 1984 wordless classic, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. Story contributor Jon Scieszka joins the conversation and performs his story "Under the Rug".
