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.
A variety of craft projects using common household materials.

"Banish boredom and spread some joy with sneaky art! Using mostly recycled or everyday items, these surprising, good-humoured public art projects are both simple to make and easy to remove. Candy fish that hide in coffee cups, tiny clotheslines displayed on washing machines, and paper speech bubbles left between the pages of kids' favorite library books are just a few of the positive, provocative ideas you'll find in this friendly guide. With detailed instructions for making each project and colourful photos of the projects in action, Sneaky Art will appeal to crafters and pranksters alike." June 2013 Kids' Books newsletter
