Writing Idea #11

Chris Van Allsburg (author of books like Jumanji and The Polar Express) put together a great book called The Chronicles of Harris Burdick.  In this book, he illustrates a picture and has a famous author write a story based on the picture.  So, I plan to include a few of the pictures as writing ideas throughout the summer.  I will post a picture and see what you can come up with for a story based on the picture.  Study the picture carefully and brainstorm what sort of story you can create out of it.  Here is the first picture:

This picture is titled "The House on Maple Street" - You may use this as the title for your story, or choose something else.
