"In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls..."
Who can resist this story of Miss Clavel and her Parisian charges---all in two straight lines.
The story of Madeline, charmingly illustrated by its author, is great for ages 3 and up and with its sweet story and reassuring rhymes, has been enjoyed since it was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1940. It's especially nice for any little one who, like Madeline, needs to spend some time in a hospital.
This edition is a reissue of the 1939 edition!
