The outrageous sequel to the best-selling How to Draw a Radish (55,000 sold!), Joy Sikorski's newest is the perfect stay-at-home passport to fun. Turning her curious creativity to the fertile territory of home and garden, Joy offers a host of essential crafts and useful suggestions: how to turn an overgrown lawn into a mystical maze, transform a dull cement sidewalk into a fancy brick path, make edible Louis XIV furniture, and much, much more. In between easy home improvement projects, readers can learn to draw an octopus, a rolling pin, a flying saucer, and a zigzag dog, in addition to other satisfying methods of amusing yourself chez vous. So toss those stuffy decorating manuals out the door! Don't pull up another weed! How to Draw a Cup of Coffee is the antidote to domestic productivity.
