PRESIDENTS are made of BIG EATERS...and so much more! You get a portrait of former U. S. president Jimmy Carter, who builds houses for the homeless. See the presidents as never before -- made out of objects! Using everything from blue jeans to boxing gloves, Hanoch Piven "builds" the characters of our leaders. And with revealing anecdotes to go along with Piven's creations, you'll never forget what makes up George (Washington), George (Bush), or anyone else in between.
Hanoch Piven is the acclaimed creator of Let’s Make Faces, What Presidents Are Made Of, What Athletes Are Made Of, and What Cats Are Made Of, among other books for children. His incisive portraits have been published in the United States in such major magazines as Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, TheNew Yorker, TheAtlantic Monthly, Entertainment Weekly, and TheNew York Times. He lives with his wife and children in Israel. Visit him at PivenWorld.com.
