Praise For Magritte’s Apple

"With clever illustrations full of hints of the famed surrealist’s paintings, Verplancke offers an approachable, kid-friendly take on Magritte’s groundbreaking art style."

— Booklist Online

"Magritte's brand of surrealism is inherently intriguing to children; Belgian artist Verplancke builds on that interest, inventing a playful narrative that explores his compatriot's subjects and style while showcasing his own formidable talent."

— Kirkus

“The best children’s books also get adults thinking and, as an introduction to philosophy and the nature of language, this one certainly does.”
