"Outrageous!" the judges cried. "Ridiculous!" Who would dare enter a portrait of a duck in the Grand Contest of Art? But when Felix Clouseau's painting quacks, he is hailed as a genius. Suddenly everyone wants a Clousseau masterpiece, and the unknown painter becomes an overnight sensation. But in this sly 1988 tale for readers 4 to 8 by the author of Terrific and Life on Mars, that's when the trouble begins. In his paintings, Jon Agee shows marvelous attention to historical detail, re-creating a 19th-century Paris that is populated by absurdly pretentious figures.
