Join internationally renowned portrait artist Hanoch Piven on a delightful, artistic journey to reimagine the everyday world into facial fun in this instructive, illustrated guide.
My Best Friend Is As Sharp As a Pencil: And Other Funny Classroom Portraits
Here's the perfect back-to-school gift for budding artists. Like the creator's previous picture book, My Dog Is as Smelly as Dirty Socks, this picture book encourages children to be creative and make their own object portraits. It's a fun activity for home or for the classroom. You can even check out portraits made by other readers in the "kids' gallery" of author Hanoch Piven's Web site, www.pivenworld.com—and while you're at it, send in your own! Learn how to create a funny librarian, a colorful art teacher, or your best friend by seeing how one girl does it in this simple, playful picture book that's comprised of portraits made of objects. Once the girl has talked about—and drawn—the key figures in her school, she ends with the pièce de résistance—a class portrait!
What Athletes Are Made Of
Have you ever wondered what it takes to make a legandary sports star? Talent? Determination? Teamwork? You're right, but it takes more than that. Using everyday items like toy airplanes, Coke bottles, and pencil sharpeners, and with fun and fascinating tales of each player's life -- on and off the field -- Hanoch Piven shows us what our favorite pro-athletes of the past and present are really made of.
What Cats Are Made Of
There are thirty-nine distinct breeds of cats, and each one is different. How different? From the Siberian to the Exotic Shorthair and many others in between, Hanoch Piven uses everything from lipstick to circuit boards to show us what our favorite cats are really made of. After all, as Leonardo da Vinci said, "The smallest feline is a masterpiece."
