Originally published as Mad About Madeline , this new edition is simply gorgeous Growing up, I never got around to reading these cute stories because they were always checked out of our elementary school s library Love the illustrations and rhyming This edition also contains some of the author s early sketches and background history of how he created these endearing classics. A favourite from my childhood Enjoyed sharing these stories with my two little men, M 4 and T 3. A good children s book, but I liked the television show much better. This is a lovely children s book it s a collection of stories centered around the character who shares a name with the stories, and I think a lot of people feel nostalgic toward these stories I don t really feel the connection others do to the stories, but I do love the cartoon I am very happy to add this to my growing collection of children s books, and I would suggest that anyone in touch with their inner child pick this up I especially love that this isn t about princesses getting rescued This is a lovely children s book it s a collection of stories centered around the character who shares a name with the stories, and I think a lot of people feel nostalgic toward these stories I don t really feel the connection others do to the stories, but I do love the cartoon I am very happy to add this to my growing collection of children s books, and I would suggest that anyone in touch with their inner child pick this up I especially love that this isn t about princesses getting rescued by a prince It s about a little girl who loves advventure I have not read Madeline in YEARS, and it was just like I remembered it From Madeline getting her appendix removed, to finding Genevieve, and all the adventures with Pepito.this was so nice to revisit It actually kind of makes me want to see the movie again.
