Madeline's fun-loving spirit and bold personality get her into the greatest adventures. In these five books she turns a trip to the hospital into a grand adventure, tumbles into the river Seine only to be rescued by a fearless dog, runs off to join the circus -- and that's just the beginning! Thanks to humorous, lyrical text, breathtaking artwork, and a spunky redhead named Madeline, these books have timeless appeal and perennial popularity.

One day the Spanish ambassador moves into the Parisian house next door to Miss Clavel, Madeline, and her 11 classmates. And, His Excellency has a boy! Pepito, as he is named, is not just any boy: according to Madeline, he is a "bad hat"--for starters, he's equipped with an irksome slingshot, he "ghosts," and he boasts. And when Miss Clavel gives him a box of tools to function as an "outlet for his energy," he makes a guillotine for the cook's chickens. ("He ate them ROASTED, GRILLED, AND FRITO! Oh what a horror was PEPITO.") Children will love Ludwig Bemelmans's jaunty rhymes and simple, evocative drawings, and the ferocity with which the feisty Madeline suspects, condemns, and rebuffs the boisterous new boy neighbor. In the end, however, everything comes out right, and we, along with Miss Clavel, can relax. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin SnelsonAbout the Author:
