A detailed lesson plan for an investigation into creating believable non-speaking characters appears below. Fritz leads the way and they come upon a wall with an open doorway. A full 5 stars! His pictures are so realistic even if they are drawn in pencil.
After the boy leaves the dog plays with the lost hat. He knew he had to find Fritz before Mr. This story tells of a stressful afternoon of dog watching for a young man named Alan Mitz. After searching for the dog with no result he goes to the house of the owner, he is a retired magician.
The feeling of unease is pervasive despite the abundance of flowers.

I'm not sure what exactly is supposed to be beautiful about it. Alan chases Fritz but when he slips and falls, he loses sight of the little dog. Is this about the consequences of breaking the rules, or is it simply about a child's sense of enchantment?

The Garden of Abdul Gasazi
The lesson of what happens when one disregards warnings is soft-pedaled. Parents need to know that the lesson of what happens when one disregards warnings is soft-pedaled. This book is not my favorite Van Alssburg book. Chris Van Allsburg does a great job at making the book extremely dramatic and intense at the same time as most of the book is spent with Alan trying to look for Fritz and encountering the mysterious Abdul Gasazi. But I guess my main point of angry frustration with this book, with The Garden of Abdul Gasazi and the true reason why instead of two stars, I have now decided on but one star is that in my humble opinion and the happy ending for Fritz and Miss Hester notwithstanding, namely that Fritz does return safe and sound, although I am indeed happy mostly for and on behalf of Alan there is not really ever MUCH IF ANY presented criticism of Miss Hester's clear failures as a dog owner, there are no lessons learned and sadly more than likely, Miss Hester will probably simply keep indulging and insufficiently disciplining, not training Fritz, that he will just continue to be the same badly mannered, biting and obviously often vicious little beast as before because there certainly is NO narrational mention whatsoever in The Garden of Abdul Gasazi of Miss Hester even somehwat, even remotely understanding that her dog is ill behaved and nasty because of lacking discipline and training on her part.
Be it the towering presence of Abdul Gasazi's stately house and gardens, or the quiet menace of the man himself, each immaculate drawing has Van Allsburg's signature use of detail. We readers easily begin to believe in situations and ideas that might seem far-fetched had Van Allsburg not described them so carefully and matter-of-factly.
Fritz, being the little ratbag he is, nonchalantly scampers through the open doorway to the garden's interior.
When gardsn is time for his afternoon walk, Fritz breaks free and wanders into forbidden territory - and the consequences could be horrible! Share the work of one or two students who have described characters using some of Van Allsburg's techniques. Gqsazi brings the question up of if the readers believe in magic, and even gives them the chance to decide for themselves what the ending of the story means.
