Review:

"When her class visits the White House Easter Egg Roll, Madeline befriends the lonely first daughter, who's nicknamed Candle. Madeline, her magician (who appeared in Madeline's Christmas), and the 11 other girls, play with Candle in her room, hunt Easter eggs, and eat desserts until they have tummy aches. But Madeline and Candle bend the rules by staying up all night and getting a memorable nighttime ride on a 'magic tide of cherry blossom,' courtesy of the magician. Marciano's paintings are faithful to those of his grandfather, but his heroine (and story) feel more wispy than spirited. Ages 3 — 5. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Readers will see Washington, D.C., as never before, when Madeline takes a midnight sightseeing tour on a magic carpet of cherry blossoms. Invited to the White House by Candle, the presidents lonely only daughter, for the annual Easter Egg hunt and roll, Madeline and the other little girls have a rollicking good time, and introduce Candle to the joys of occasionally breaking the rules. With a bouncy read-aloud text and gorgeous watercolor pictures, Madeline at the White House is in the best tradition of the beloved Madeline books.

FBB, April 26, 2011 (view all comments by FBB)
Both my daughter (now 35 years old) and I loved the "Madeline" series of books years ago when she was a little girl. Now, I've been buying them for my granddaughter who's taken great delight in them, including Marciano's "Madeline and the Cats of Rome." However, his most recent "Madeline at the White House" is a disappointment in a number of ways. First, the illustrations are brief: one does not get the architectural "tour" one gets in the other books. Nor does the story line keep a young (or older) reader on the sort of adventure we've come to expect of the irrepressable main character. The story is, therefore, flat compared to the other "Madeline" books. Both my graddaughter and I were disappointed in this particular book. Which is really a shame.
