Praise

“Ordinarily, a dog’s life isn’t characterized by glamour, but Max Stravinsky, canine extraordinaire, runs with the in-crowd. Max, last sighted among the poodles and bulldogs of gay Paree in Ooh-la-la (Max in Love), here continues his postmodern, exceedingly quirky adventures. This time he’s in Tinseltown to pen a “sugar-smackin, rootin-tootin, high-spy, sci-fi…madcap musical mystery” script, and he gets star treatment, even coasting around in a limo chauffeured by the fabulously suave Ferrrnando stet Extra Debonnaire.”  –Publisher’s Weekly

“When readers last saw that debonair dog Max, he had met his true love in Paris and was off to seek fame and fortune in Tinseltown ( Ooh-la-la Max in Love, Viking, 1991). This book recounts his Hollywood adventures with the same irreverence, eccentricities, and sardonic wit that make Kalman’s other books so unique and so memorable. Once again, the vivid, surreal illustrations punctuate the zany text, but may also stand alone in their offbeat and on-target commentaries. If possible, Max’s cinematic antics meet and surpass his earlier escapades as an outlandish expose on human behavior.” —School Library Journal

“The ongoing saga of Max the dog–in words, in pictures, in typography–has vaulted across genres, between audiences and beyond expectations…it’s truly for all ages.” —Booklist
