Since her introduction in 1989, Maxine has charmed the socks off card and book buyers across the country. She's Hallmark's crusty old gal who never fails to say exactly what needs to be said. Now in a follow-up to "Don't Worry, Be Crabby" and "Crabby Road", the "queen of outrageous" ("McCalls") offers the ultimate Maxine primer. 125 full-color illustrations.
Maxine is a bona fide phenomenon. Her likeness graces mugs, calendars, T-shirts, collectibles, and even a 2.5-foot doll. She's been hailed by the press as the "Mother Lode of laughs" (- People magazine) and "The queen of outrageous" (- McCall's). Maxine is fresh, funny, odd, and ever-so-deliciously twisted. Maxine's creator, artist John Wagner, based part of his character's tell-it-like-it-is persona on his grandmother, mother, and maiden aunts. "She's been a voice for a silent group of women that are glad that this cranky old woman is finally saying what she wants."
The voice of Maxine comes out as: "My soul's had enough chicken soup. It wants some chocolate." "My idea of feng shui is to have them arrange the pepperoni in a circle on my pizza." "I may be old, but people who look like me always win the lottery." MAXINE: YELLING IT LIKE IT IS includes all-new, never-before-published material, all in full-color.
