Publisher Comments:

A trip around a city block is like a trip around the world!

Peeking out through a die-cut window on the jacket, Madlenka invites the reader to enter her world. And what a world it is! On the surface, it looks like an ordinary city block, but as we meet Madlenka's neighbors — the French baker, the Indian news vendor, the Italian ice-cream man, the Latin American grocer, a retired opera singer from Germany, an African American school friend, and the Asian shopkeeper — and look through die-cut windows to the images and memories they have carried from old country to new, we can see that Madlenka's block is as richly varied as its inhabitants. And why is Madlenka going around the block, jumping for joy? Her tooth is loose, and she wants everyone to know!

 
Madlenka is a 2000 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

Wonderful book! Madlenka visits all her multi-cultural friends in the neighborhood to share her pride in her loose tooth. An excellent book for any girl named Madeleine, Maddalena, Magdalena or any variety therein. As always, Peter Sis' drawings are stunning. My 3 year old loves the adventure.
