Picture book to teach inferencing

Anyone out there teaching 5-8 grade that uses picture books for introducing topics? I use a "lead to learn" type modeling strategy to introduce lessons. I am preparing for inferencing next week and can't for the life of me remember what book I used last year. I am looking for new ones anyway.
if you have any for the following concepts, too, lemme know!

visualization

determining importance

character

conflict

context clues

thanks! -

I would suggest many (maybe all) of Chris van Allsburg's books. I would especially add to the PP's suggestions The Mysteries of Harris Burdick, The Garden of Abdul Gasazi, and The Wreck of the Zephyr. They would be perfect picture books for those middle school learners. I use them in second grade, but often have to explain them. I get chills just thinking about these books!

Visualization and Context Clues

i suggest using the poem Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. It is filled with nonsense words. Read the poem aloud to them first. The students can try to visualize and then draw or describe a scene. Then give them a copy of the poem so they can look at each nonsense word and use context clues to determine the possible meaning. Then share a picture book of this poem. It is titled Jabberwocky by Graeme Base. His illustrations are vivid and creative.

Also try Tog The Ribber or Granny's Tale. It is a picture book. It is a little darker and scary, but also filled with nonsense words. Great to use around Halloween.

Also try Can You Hear It? by William Lach. It is a picture book w/CD combo. The author took pieces of classical music and matched it up with well known art. I talk with my students about the background music in movies and how it sets the tone. We talk about what kind of music you would hear in a chase scene .... and other settings. Then I play a piece from the book's CD and they draw a picture (quick sketch) of what they think should be happening to that music. Then we share and discuss their pictures and thoughts. Then I finally show them the famous work of art William selected for that music. We talk some more and compare his work of art to ours. The music makes visualization easier and enjoyable.
