Last Day of Book Week November 15, 2008

Thanks again Anne for organizing Book Week.  I have enjoyed sharing some of my favorites and adding to my list of must reads from your site and the other players!

My last book I’m sharing is Ooh-la-la, Max in Love by Maira Kalman.  Really it’s a Maira Kalman love-fest and I recommend any and all of her work.  She is the author & illustrator of many children’s books.  My favorite is actually Max Makes a Million, but I couldn’t find it.  Oh-la-la is the sequel.

She is also an designer and an all around kick ass artist.  Check out her webpage and watch The Elements of Style short movie.

I wish I were as cool as Maira Kalman!

    I have been following Maira Kalman’s career for almost 20 years! I’m 27 now, I got Max Makes a Million when I was 7 years old and instantly fell in love. My two year old adores the entire series. I highly recommend getting the Max Deluxe, a book that incorporates three of the four Max stories. You won’t regret it!
