Made you look! Kids will uncover their inner guerrilla artist as they sneak funny art projects into surprising places to make people smile! For young artists, tricksters, and crafters, here is a hip, friendly how-to manual for creating removable and shareable art projects from easily found materials. The sneaky part is in the installation! Each work of art is custom-created for display in public places -- a tiny cork-bottomed boat in a public fountain, a plate of tiny paper cupcakes on your teacher's desk, a penny left on the ground for a stranger, a funny message left on your mother's bathroom mirror, and more. This utterly unique guide -- part craft book, part art-philosophy -- offers a stylish and sweet "made-you-look-twice" spirit of fun meant to put a smile on the faces of strangers and loved ones alike.
