When Madeline falls into the River Seine she is rescued by a brave stray dog. Madeline, along with the other orphans and their teacher Miss Clavel, adopt the dog, whom they name Genevieve, and bring back to live with them at the orphanage. However, when the orphanage's board of trustees discovers that a dog is living on the premises, they put Genevieve out on the streets. Determined to get her beloved pet back, Madeline leads the others on a search through all of Paris. Illustrated with two- and full-color drawings. Named one the Best Illustrated Books of 1953 by the New York Times Book Review and winner of the 1954 Caldecott Medal.
