The Garden of Abdul Gasazi
Preview: Hear it

Sometimes that very thin line between illusion and reality is not as clearly defined as we would like it to be. It certainly wasnt 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.Book Details:Format: Library BindingPublication Date: 10/10/1979Pages: 32Reading Level: Age 4 and Up
