"Outrageous!" the judges cried. "Ridiculous!" Who would dare enter a portrait of a duck in the Grand Contest of Art? But when Felix Clousseau's painting quacks, he is hailed as a genius. Suddenly everyone wants a Clousseau masterpiece, and the unknown painter becomes an overnight sensation. That's when the trouble begins. The concept and plot are clever and beautifully constructed with twists and turns, and Jon Agee's trademark wit, humour and sense of the surreal. A playful examination of what realism in art actually means, and the difference between 2 and 3 dimensional

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A master of visual storytelling and zany humour, Agee's perfectly understated picture book is brimming with ideas and artistic concepts which will entertain and inform a new generation of youngsters ... Laughter all the way... and a brilliant twist in the tail!' Lancashire Evening Post;'The story of an artist who stuns the world when his portrait of a duck starts quacking. 'They called him a genius, it was the first time in history a painting had quacked.' But Clousseau finds that artistic fame can quickly turn sour.' The Oldie;'A beautiful hardback ... The fantastic illustrations, funny narrative and sheer imagination make this a perfect book to read to a class ... Highly recommended for using as an impetus for creative writing.' School Reading List;'Like Agee's The Wall in the Middle of the Book, THE INCREDIBLE PAINTING OF FELIX CLOUSSEAU operates as both a fun story and a philosophical premise. This time, on one hand, there's a fun story about paintings coming to life, and on the other, a thoughtful look at what people want from art, and what they don't. The ending is also a surprise and will make kids do a double take in a good way, having to look at the book all over again.' Booktrust;'Truly a book for all ages, it delights the eye, promotes laughter, and stimulates the intellect. In short, chest magnifique' Horn Book, starred review;'The concept and plot are clever and beautifully constructed with twists and turns... A playful examination of what realism in art actually means, and the difference between 2 and 3 dimensional.' Achuka
