Does anyone have good picture books for teaching how to stop and jot while reading?

In my class, we do an activity called "stop and draw" to help students firm up their visualizing skills. I read aloud a passage WITHOUT showing them the pictures, and then have them "stop and draw" - literally I stop reading and they have to draw whatever they're seeing in their minds.

I can't think of any good picture books for this, but for upper level students (5th+) The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman is FANTASTIC. The first chapter has some very rich visual language.
