Hanoch Piven. Glove Story

AGE: 3-6

There’s nothing scarier than getting lost and being alone. And that’s what happened to one pink glove that fell out of the pocket of a little girl who was on her way to pre-school. The artist Hanoch Piven helps the pink glove, and shows us that the plain old world around us is full of opportunities for creativity, if we only know how to look and to pay attention. So, the glove complies with the wishes of different animals: The duck wants her to be a cockscomb, so he can masquerade as a rooster, a buck with only one antler wants her to be his other one, and she even helps a cow to suckle her calf. But the glove still misses her twin and the little girl who lost her. Full of energy and confidence in her own abilities, she decides to set out on a journey to find them.

REVIEWS

Books by Hanoch Piven are always a celebration of creativity, color and surprises small and large. This time too, the artist, best known for his collages of everyday objects, does not disappoint, and the carnival begins right on the first page … It is so refreshing to see so creative an artist and a writer who succeeds in combining an original story with original art that both children and adults will love. 

Meira Barnea Goldberg, Mako

An enchanted allegory … The pattern presented in this story is familiar from many other children’s books, it is the unique content that gives this work its strength… The representations that we have become accustomed to seeing in our world and in children’s books are presented in a different, innovative and refreshing manner by Piven, and thereby he challenges the creative thinking of his readers … Pure enjoyment is assured for readers, both young and old.
