Dinner at Magritte's by author and illustrator Michael Garland is a uniquely put together children's book. It'story can only trully be told through text and full intepretation of its illustrations. The surrealist paintings combine odd images that do not typically go together. The book is especially interesting in the fact that the fictitious story contains non-fictional characters such as Salvador Dali. Much of the bizarre imagery in the book is oddly reminiscent of Dali's own work and perhaps Garland was inspired by his artwork. The creative imagery and ironic puns located within the text combine together to create a trully unique work of art all packaged up as a children's picture book.
