I am sure that most of you can finish this sentence. Madeline has been a beloved children’s character for more than half a century. Author Ludwig Bemelmans introduced Madeline in 1939, and he wrote many stories throughout the next two decades. Thanks to his grandson, John Bemelmans Marciano, children can enjoy new Madeline stories today.

For all of you Madeline fans out there, I will end my review in true Bemelmans’ style: I hope my review wasn’t a bore. That’s all there is, there isn’t any more.

Dawn also reviewed the book over at her site, and she can report that her children, who happen to live about 12 miles from Washington, D.C., are two very big fans of this new book and were excited to recognize some of the illustrated landmarks!

Dawn blogs about books, an avid NPR obsession, and all things random at my thoughts exactly.
