Synopses & Reviews

From Powells.com:

Ludwig Bemelmans published his first children's book, Madeline, in 1939. Reader's tall and small so loved his diminutive heroine — so fearless, so fetching, so French — Bemelmans wrote and illustrated four sequels starring his puerile Parisian. When McCall's magazine commisioned Bemelmans to create an insert for their 1956 Christmas issue, Madeline was already a superstar of children's literature. Restored in 1999 and published in book form, Madeline's Christmas combines the same lighthearted storytelling and whimsical illustration that first made Madeline one of the most recognizable characters of the twentieth century. Farley, Powells.com

Publisher Comments:

It's the night before Christmas and everyone is sick in bed. All except brave Madeline, who is up and about and feeling just fine. Taking care of eleven little girls and Miss Clavel is hard work, but Madeline finds help from a magical merchant peddling flying carpets door-to-door. Now the girls are going on a Christmas journey that will surely make them forget their sniffles and sneezes. Great for gift-giving and group sharing, Madeline's Christmas now joins the five other books about Madeline as a full-sized paperback.
