Over the weekend, I had the chance to meet Chris Van Allsburg
In 1983, the Caldecott artist Chris Van Allsburg first invited young readers to consider the wreck of a small sailboat, up on a cliff, far above the crash of the surf. How could the Zephyr have made its way up there? And is it true that there was once a prideful boy determined to sail the skies despite a villager’s warning? Told as a story spun by a world-weary sailor, and illustrated with haunting, luminous, full-color pastels, The Wreck of the Zephyr takes on new life in this thirtieth-anniversary gift edition, complete with a new jacket and narration by the author available as a downloadable digital audio file. A dreamy cautionary tale for the ages.
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg | Scholastic
From two-time Caldecott winner Chris Van Allsburg, creator of Jumanji and The Polar Express, comes a poignant story of one hamster’s struggle with destiny. Being a pet store hamster isn’t much fun for Sweetie Pie, but life in human homes proves downright perilous. As Sweetie Pie longingly gazes out of his cage at the squirrels frolicking in the trees, he wonders if he’ll ever have the chance to feel the wind in his fur. Van Allsburg’s expressive, soft-hued illustrations artfully capture a hamster’s-eye view of the wide and wonderful world where maybe, just maybe, Sweetie Pie could someday run free.
