Cokie RobertsHanoch Piven's What Presidents Are Made Of is a truly weird picture book, but it will probably delight many readers, young and old. The illustrations of the presidents' faces -- which look a lot like Mr. Potato Head -- incorporate objects that tell something about them. For instance, George W. Bush is described as a sports fan, so he has a hot dog for a nose, a split bun for eyebrows, blueberry eyes and a baseball mouth. Andrew Jackson is deemed hot- tempered -- so bullets form his eyes; a red, white and blue boxing glove represents his nose; and a pistol makes his mouth.
