Sidewalk Chalk Hopscotch: A Sort-of Memoir by a Teacher Who Writes By Andy Hueller
Paperback: $12.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
Sidewalk Chalk Hopscotch isn’t exactly a memoir. It doesn’t capture teacher and author Andy Hueller’s life, which wouldn’t make for an exciting plot. It does, however, attempt... More > to capture his point of view. His stories, sometimes told as poems, grow from what he sees, hears, and experiences every day. These are the short pieces Hueller wrote alongside and for his students during five school years.

Pierre-Paul Prud'hon was a French Romantic painter and draughtsman best known for his allegorical paintings and portraits. Prud'hon's artistic style contrasted starkly with the dominant version of...

His drawings, often black chalk on blue paper, were widely admired. Prud'hon was at times clearly influenced by Neo-classicism, at other times by Romanticism.
