What Presidents are Made Of

What Presidents are Made Of

by Hanoch Piven

George Washington is made of... good intentions. Thomas Jefferson is made of... comfortable shoes. Bill Clinton is made of... enthusiasm. In this funny, unusual, and visual book, Piven uses kid-friendly materials, ranging from blue jeans to boxing gloves, to create caricature portraits that reveal what "makes up" the temperaments of several U.S. presidents. The last spread has official portraits of all the presidents, their birth and death dates, and their years in office.
