    Mr. Renny is a fabulous artist, but one day he is offered the chance by a magician to have anything he paints become real. Mr. Renny is able to make himself a ship and travel to see the world. He can make any food he desires simply by painting it. Life is grand. Until one day, when a friend in town asks Mr. Renny for a painting. He can no longer do it. Mr. Renny decides the magic is not quite what he thought it would be and wishes to just be able to do his regular art work again. As Mr. Renny says: "Once a painter, always a painter."

    Mr. Renny is such a good painter that everything he paints looks just like the real thing. But no matter what he paints, no one wants to buy his work at the market. Everyone flocks to Rose’s fruit stall instead. If only Mr. Renny could eat the apple in his painting, then he wouldn’t be hungry. POOF! A stranger in a bowler hat appears, snaps his fingers and an real apple tumbles out of the painting, “Take a bite and all your paintings will come to life.” And POOF! The man is gone. Mr. Renny bites into the apple and all his paintings spring to life! Mr. Renny is overjoyed. He starts small, just painting what he wants to eat, but then his wants become bigger. He paints cars, cruise ships, swimming pools, blimps, and a huge mansion. He’s never satisfied because he’s always thinking of his next painting. Then one day Rose from the market pays him a call. She wants to buy a painting. But he has no paintings to sell because they all come to life. “So you’re no longer a painter? What a pity, Mr. Renny,” and Rose leaves. What should Mr. Renny do? Is he still a painter if he has no paintings to show or sell? Are real objects the same as painted ones?Originally written in Flemish and published in Belgium, this book is a meditation on art, reality, and materialism wrapped in a cartoonish adventure. The pacing is lively and the translation is well done. Timmers is obviously paying tribute to the surreal painter, René Magritte. Mr. Renny’s painting of an apple and the mysterious and magical stranger were clearly inspired by Magritte’s paintings. In addition, the story begins with the reality bending words, “This is not an apple,” beneath an illustration of a bright green apple. The painted illustrations are bright and bold and the big-headed, bubble-eyed characters are playful and quirky. The compositions are top notch and there is much to be discovered in the details.Full Review at Picture-Book-a-Day:

    This book tells the tale of Mr. Renny, a dog who is a painter extraordinaire, yet no one buys his paintings. One day, a mysterious man shows up and gives Renny the power to turn anything he paints into reality. Renny takes advantage of this new power and becomes very rich, living in luxury, but he is never satisfied. One day, an old friend of his asks him for a painting and he comes to the realization that he does not paint anymore, and isn't satisfied with his life. So he finds the mysterious man and asks to have his paintings be paintings again. Then he lives happily ever after, being satisfied with his life.The story is actually rather boring and predictable. Nothing really ever goes wrong for Mr. Remmy and when he wants his old life back, he immediately gets it. There's no struggle, no lesson learned, just living happily ever after. I was at least hoping that Remmy would have some sort of realization that he would only be satisfied if he followed what he loved doing, but there was no explicit message there. It was just kind of boring. The story is fine for young children, but there are so many better stories out there for kids to learn from.What salvages this book from being completely boring are Timmers' illustrations. He uses an interesting style of shading and color to create vivid yet fantastical pictures that bring the book to life. The illustrations also fit well with the story as Mr. Renny's paintings are supposed to be realistic to come to life and the illustrations themselves are fairly realistic. The fun of the book comes from seeing all of the amazingly vivid pictures and colors. This book has a boring story, but great pictures which makes it worth reading.

    A picture book about a dog who paints beautiful pictures but never manages to sell any. One day, a mysterious man brings his paintings to life, and suddenly the dog can eat his fill, as well as drive a sweet car and drink plenty of champagne. Eventually, he asks his paintings to be changed back because someone wants to buy his painting and he misses his artwork. While a cute story, readers might be a little unsure of the overall point to/moral of this story (to be honest, I'm a little unsure). With solid binding, thick paper, and bright illustrations, children will enjoy this story by a European author/illustrator.

    (KidLit ED204 category: Fantasy) The colorful illustrations draw you in, while the thought provoking idea of magically having all your paintings come to life keeps you interested! What would you do if you could have anything, just by painting it? Would you be happy? Could anything be wrong with that? A cute children's story with an important underlying moral.

    Age: Preschool+Art: PaintingA common tale about endless material wishes coming true but never being fully satisfied. Mr. Renny is given the ability to paint whatever he wants and have it become real. Only when Mr. Renny is asked to paint for the sake of painting does he realize that this gives him most happiness.

    Geweldig boek.Mooie tekeningen. Veelheid aan woordenschat om te benoemen op de prenten en extra dingen om te ontdekken.Spoort kinderen aan tot nadenken. Educatief. Met een knipoog naar René Magritte.Zo goed dat ik het zelf aanschaf.

    Charming story with a subtly presented moral. The art is funny and colorful. Fun whether or not you get the message.

    What if anything you painted could come to life? What would that mean? A sweet little book that makes us wonder does having everything we wish for really bring us happiness?
