Nothing frightens Madeline - not tigers, not mice, not even getting sick. Even a trip to the hospital is a grand adventure. With its endearing heroine, cheerful humor, and famous paintings of Paris, it's no wonder this Caldecott Honor Book is one of the best-loved children's stories of all time. A true classic, Madeline continues to enchant readers after sixty years. A picture Puffin book. Recommended for ages 4 to 8. A 1940 Caldecott Honor Book.
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"
