The French purport to be one of zee most romantic cultures, but, my honeybunny, did you know that they call their sweeties mon petit chou (my little cabbage)? Or that in El Salvador, lovers call each other gordita (fatty) without getting slapped for doing so?

From the bestselling author of How to be Happy, Dammit comes the ultimate gift for the jet-set coquette, How to Speak Fluent Lovey Dovey in 11 Languages in 24 Hours, a charming guide to terms of endearment from around the world.

Now, my little mango, this book is cheaper than chocolate but just as sweet; perfect as a gift for Valentine's Day, anniversaries, birthdays–or anytime you just feel like buying something for your zaubermaus (magic mouse). And speaking of chocolate, makovka mya (my poppyseed), a New York chocolate company called True Confections has licensed the rights to create a box of chocolates based on this book! True Confections has also created chocolate bars based on Spiderman and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

And, ma puce (my flea), this book ees far more useful than "voulez vous le buerre." In addition to its pronunciation guide, How to Speak Fluent Lovey Dovey also contains an International-Do-It-Yourself-Lovey-Dovey-Prefix-Suffix to prepare readers for world-class flirting. For instance, the Greek suffix —aki means "little one" and when combined with the American term "jackhammer" gives you an instant new Lovey Doveyism: jackhammeraki!

Thematically organized (Animal, Vegetable, Gardenvariety, Bodyparts, Insult-or-Compliment) and completely hand-lettered and illustrated by the author , HOW TO SPEAK FLUENT LOVEY DOVEY is the ultimate way to guarantee un beso from your querido this Valentine's Day.

About the author (2003)

the authorized bio of . . . Karen Salmansohn

Karen's first lovey-dovey-name was Karoness--or at least that's how it sounded when she was 8. She was really being called "Karen S." because there were 3 Karens in her school class. Karen always like being Karoness. It made her feel shnazzy. Sadly, at age 12, she was returned to mere Karen status when the other Karens switched schools. Later lovey dovey-esque names became "Special K" and "ma puce." Oh . . . she's also a best selling author whose books include How to be Happy, Dammit and The Clitourist: A Guide to one of the Hottest Spots on Earth.
