What sort of story will you tell?  Fourteen black and white drawings each accompanied by a title and a single line of text create the setting and the first line for the story that you will tell as you take adventure in hand with the turn of each page.  

In 2011 fourteen well-known authors took a page and wrote the story from their imaginations.  That book is THE CHRONICLES OF HARRIS BURDICK: FOURTEEN AMAZING AUTHORS TELL THE TALES with an Introduction by Lemony Snicket.  Try your hand at the stories and then find the CHRONICLES and see what the pros did.
