Sometimes that very thin line between illusion and reality is not as clearly defined as we would like it to be. It certainly wasn't the day that Alan Mitz stumbled into the garden of Abdul Gasazi. For in this bizarre and eerie place -- where strange topiary trees loomed -- the evil visage of Gasazi casts its shadow. And even after Alan escaped, the spell of Gasazi still seemed to penetrate into his everyday world. In this extraordinary, unusual, and unique picture book, Chris Van Allsburg explores both the real and surreal worlds with incredible deftness. In doing so, he has created exquisite and beautiful images that will continue to haunt readers long after they have left the enchanted garden of Abdul Gasazi.

Great book, beautiful illustrations!

What a terrific book! The illustrations are the best! They are simply done in graphite (??), but the black and white format shows the author/illustrator's mastery of the medium and his great talent in drawing. It is a book I would recommend for art students because of the visuals and a very entertaining story for children. It also ends with a little twist that can offer the adult and child an opportunity to discuss the book and the child's understanding of the tale.
I love the art work on this book

I love the art work on this book. The story is a bit too short an so I wish the book was a bit longer but overall it's a really nice book for a young child.

A Magical Story

Absolutely charming story. The illustrations are magical in and of themselves. This story is ostensibly about a boy who is charged with taking care of a neighbor's dog. However, the story takes some clever turns and winds up showing us that perhaps, just perhaps, magic does indeed exist. Wonderful to spark the imagination of young children. Written simply but with direct and impactful language. A recommendation for anyone's library; child or adult.

Subtle, fanciful, amazing detail

I am a Chris Van Allsburg fan, have been since my now in their 20's kids were infants. The Garden of Abdul Gasazi might be my favorite. The pencil drawings are magnificent, so richly textured, subtle and powerful. The tale itself mesmerized my children; you always step into a realistic-sounding fantasy before you know you've crossed that threshold. A joy for the adult reading to the child, as well as for the child who enters this world. Following the dog...'nuf sed. If you appreciate great art in children's books, combined with masterful storytelling, check out Van Allsburg's work. This black and white venture rates 5 stars.
