Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Madeline is one of the best-loved characters in children's literature. Set in picturesque Paris, this tale of a brave little girl's trip to the hospital was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1940 and has as much appeal today as it did then. The combination of a spirited heroine, timelessly appealing art, cheerful humor, and rhythmic text makes Madeline a perennial favorite with children of all ages.

"No one has ever written more delightful stories than the Madeline books, whose text and pictures are cherished by parents as well as by youngsters, and which have brightened the evening shadows at many a bedtime". — International Herald Tribune

Synopsis:

A Caldecott Honor Book

Madeline truly needs no introduction. An enduring classic, Madeline continues to enchant readers more than seventy years after its first publication.

Nothing frightens Madeline—not tigers, not mice, not even getting sick. To Madeline, a trip to the hospital is a grand adventure.

About the Author

Ludwig Bemelmans (1898-1962) (www.madeline.com), a painter, illustrator, and writer for both children and adults, originally published Madeline in 1939. It lives on today, along with Caldecott Medal winner Madelines Rescue, as a seminal picture book in childrens literature. Ludwig Bemelmans grandson, John Bemelmans Marciano, carries on his grandfathers legacy and has written and illustrated four books about Madeline of his own, including Madeline and the Old House in Paris and Madeline at the White House

We love this engaging and colorful story, which has a poetic cadence.
We have been reading it since my daughter was 2, and now she is 4. She has nearly memorized the book and it has stimulated many questions about Paris, the bravery of the young heroine, Madeline, her friends, and the medical procedure. We are sending it to my niece who is undergoing an appendicitis operation.
