This is a fabulous set of the illustrations depicted in the Mysteries of Harris Burdick. The posters are a great source for kids to write their own stories, as only the title of the picture is listed. Kids' stories can be viewed on the Chris VanAllsburg website or they can submit one of their own. While the description here labels it as a calendar, I was sure to check the ISBN to be sure it was the posters. I ordered them for my staff and they are indeed the large posters! A great value to be treasured for ages!
