|Dun dun DUNNNNN!|
It's hard to choose a favorite illustration, but I always loved this one titled "Mr Linden's Library." (You can probably guess why.)

In case you weren't aware, there's a recently published "sequel," The Chronicles of Harris Burdick, with stories written by renowned authors such as Lois Lowry, Jules Feiffer, and Linda Sue Park. My mother, remembering how much I loved the first Harris Burdick book, gave me Chronicles for Christmas. I haven't read it yet, possibly because I'm afraid that the stories written by these fabulous authors will clash with the visions I had in my head as a kid. (I'm sure I'll get over it.)
Here's to choosing your own adventure, friends.
