A man named Rene floats through the world of his dreams and imagination, fulfilling his desire to become a painter - of apples and hats, apple hats, apple-these and apple-thats. In his paintings, leaves are lips, baguettes are noses, the right side is never up, and the upside is never down. Inspired by the artwork of Rene Magritte, these whimsical, subversive illustrations mix everyday objects and words together in ways that are guaranteed to make children laugh and think.
