Mad about Madeline: The Complete Talesby Ludwig Bemelmans
Synopses & Reviews
Here, collected in one volume for the first time ever, are all the adventures of Madeline, a fearless little girl full of mischief and vitality who is one of the world's most popular and beloved fictional characters. Madeline, which was first published in 1939, and its five sequels have charmed generations of readers, and become true classics. In each of these books, Bemelmans' humorous verse, his immortal characters — Miss Clavel, Pepito, the magician, and others — and his wonderful, whimsical drawgins of Paris combine to create a memorable reading experience for people of all ages.
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anna Quindlen has written an introduction to the collection, which also includes "The Isle of God," an essay by Bemelmans on how he invented Madeline, and never-before published working sketches of Madeline, as well as photos of the Bemelmans family.
For over sixty years, Madeline's adventures have enthralled her ever-growing audience. This collection brings together all six of the Madeline books in one volume.

This landmark volume will be treasured by the entire family.
