A bright and buoyant sneak preview of a very surreal children's picture book by author/illustrator D. B. Johnson (Henry Hikes to Fitchburg). Magritte's Marvelous Hat is filled with Magritte-like (Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte) word puzzles and impossible pictures: One bright day in the dark of night... the painter Magritte (a blue-eyed hound) bought a fine bowler hat that did not pinch his ears or muss his hair, but floated just above his head and fit him perfectly! And what's more, the hat made painting easy. With the hat floating overhead, each picture Magritte painted was better than the one before. But can he paint without the hat?
The book includes four overlay pages that transform the pictures as the page is turned.
