Product Details


“Kalman’s tale is meant for tykes, but full-grown readers will love her lush drawings and whimsical wordplay, too.” —Zoe Donaldson, O, The Oprah Magazine

“In his best venture so far, Max the dog searches for the Meaning of Life and finds several possibilities…[Kalman’s] writing is as funny and furiously paced as ever and her seemingly slapdash illustrations still sophisticated and childlike at once. She observes people, religions, and customs in witty but respectful ways, and as in Chicken Soup, Boots (1993), beneath all the silliness lurk important ideas, thoughtfully expressed.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“[Kalman’s] witty, free-association writing style is enhanced to maximum effect by the varied, cleverly employed typography. A perfect union of place and palette, of dharma, (dog)ma and unsurpassed cosmological kookiness.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
