Read full description of the books:
I have to first say that the art here is phenomenal. I really enjoyed it, its combination of surrealist/magic realism style/content and the book creator’s own style comes through, I think.
I’m not a huge fan of Magritte or Dali but I loved them here. Their personalities as men came to life, as did their artistic processes, particularly Magritte’s. I think I’ll see his work in a whole new light.
This would be a wonderful book to introduce to children who are about to see an exhibit that includes works by Magritte and/or Dali, and especially for kids who are about to create their own artwork. I found it inspirational.
The story is sweet, about a young boy, bored at a summer house with his parents, whose next door neighbors happen to be René Magrittte and his wife Georgette, and who at some point have a friend over to vist: Salvador Dali. I have mixed feelings about the depiction of Pierre’s parents as so, so boring, gray and dull.
There is a text informational page in the back of the book that covers the artistic style of magic realism and has blurbs on Magritte, Dali, and this book’s artist.
This book, story & pictures, is very creatively done, and a lot of fun to read.
There are a couple pages where sensitive children, particularly vegetarian children, might do a double take: live animals coming out of their dishes right at the table, dishes that normally contain dead animals, generally better hidden. I found it sort of funny but also a tad disturbing, and a few readers/listeners could feel uncomfortable.
Great for art lessons and art history lessons of various sorts.
