You know them, you love them, you've heard them a thousand times. They're the unmistakable observations, exclamations, and declarations of the Jewish Mom. Parlez these same time-honored phrases francais and suddenly the classic kvetch takes on a certain sassy savoir faire. Illustrated with cartoons throughout.

About what you'd expect, except what's probably not clear is that this vile little cocoction (which I worked on, tangentially, when I worked at Random House) was supposed to be a parody of French for Cats, which was staggeringly popular in its day. GET IT? Oy.

I thought this book was really funny. The Mother sounds more like my older aunts and grandmother than my mom, though. Love the illustrations. Cute book.
