Louie loves watching his young master paint, and when the boy puts his finishing touches on a particularly good self-portrait, Louie barks enthusiastically. One day, when the boy is at school, Louie tries his own paw at painting a still life. Is this purely an accident, or is Louie a "genius," just like his master?

Praise for Extraordinary Pets

"The gatefold punch lines are unexpected and often deliciously loony...Barroux's powers of persuasion should have readers considering the fun, if not the practicality, of the purchase of a penguin." - Publishers Weekly
