From the Publisher
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 Madeline’s Rescue, as a seminal picture book in children’s literature. Ludwig Bemelmans’ grandson, John Bemelmans Marciano, carries on his grandfather’s 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

Set in picturesque Paris, this tale of a brave little girl's trip to the hospital is as appealing today as it was in 1940. The combination of spirited heroine, timelessly appealing art, cheerful humor, and rhythmic text makes "Madeline" a perennial favorite with children of all ages. Full color.
