My Dog Is As Smelly As Dirty Socks
How do you draw your smelly dog? Your playful daddy? Your yummy mommy? See how one girl does it in this simple, clever picture book that's comprised of family portraits made out of objects. For example, her baby brother is so noisy—he's as loud as a whistle, a horn, and even a fire truck!—that she creates a picture of him with whistles for eyes, a horn mouth, and holding a fire truck. After the girl has described everyone in her family (including herself, in great detail), she asks, "What does your special family look like?" encouraging readers to create their own portraits. With a list of objects at the end of the book to use as a guide, this is the ideal choice for budding artists everywhere. Here's a wonderful exploration of simile and metaphor for young readers. And don't miss the companion book My Best Friend is as Sharp as a Pencil!

Faces
Hanoch Piven has taken the art of caricature to a whole new level. With a minimalist stroke of his deft hand, combined with an object related to what the subject is noted for -- along with his sharp wit -- Piven presents his vision of the celebrities he portrays. The stories Piven tells about each face are enlivened by elemental puns, developed from a three-step creative process. As Piven is sketching the subject in pencil, he is coming up with a word or two to describe the person: "Americana" for Bruce Springsteen, "media" for Jesse Jackson. Now he goes out "to the field" to find the appropriate object, the field being anything from a toy store to a hardware store. Then he lays out all the stuff he has found and combines the objects, adding or culling as necessary, until he achieves the minimum amount of information the viewer needs to recognize the person. Thus we have Steven Spielberg's beard and moustache expressed with strips of film; Jesse Jackson's mouth is a speaker. Within the seven categories of TV, film, music, American politics, the world, finance, and miscellaneous, Faces by Hanoch Piven presents 76 deliciously wicked takes on the likes of such diverse folks as Sigmund Freud, Marilyn Monroe, and the Unabomber.

Scary Show of Mo and Jo
With distinctive illustrations, Hanoch Piven crafts a delightful story of competitive siblings whose attempts to frighten each other--revealed through 8 gatefold pages--are surpassed by their baby brother. Mo and Jo are sweet kids who engage in costumed one-upmanship until they're surprised by a “real” monster who turns out to be the baby, Bo. Piven's unique approach-showing the photographed objects that will be used in the children's disguises on the outside of the gatefold, and revealing the finished face when the fold is opened-brings a sense of excitement to this simple but compelling story for children aged 4 to 8.
