Read full description of the books Ooh-la-la: Max in Love:Max, a millionaire dog poet, has come to Paris from New York to see the sights and find his heart's desire. As he basks in the glitter and glow of Paris, Max finds himself in the midst of cosmopolitan expatriates and eccentric Parisiennes. Ooh-la-la (Max in Love) quivers with surreal and funny language, and idiosyncratic, luminous art.
"With a palette as subtle as the light on Montmartre and a notably free, sophisticated style, Kalman incorporates witty references to artists and their work in her own delightfully lively paintings." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Brilliant, bold, funny, and obscure, this is definitely one of Kalman's best efforts to date." (School Library Journal)
