Abridged, but still nice

by zard on 6/19/2013

This is the abridged board book version, and not the hardcover. I bought it for my 3 year old, and she loves it. Cute story about a brave girl that goes to emergency surgery. We will buy the hardcopy when she is a bit older. Read More

Praise
"Humorous and delightful."
From the Publisher
Annotation With one of the most well known and lovely opening sentences in all of children's literature ("In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines"), MADELINE is an unforgettable picture book about a truly unforgettable character. This story, the first in a series of books about Madeline, introduces readers to life at the French boarding school run by a kindly nun named Miss Clavel. Although she is dedicated to all her students, Miss Clavel must pay special attention to the activities of her youngest charge, a feisty girl named Madeline. Here Madeline faces an emergency visit to the hospital to have her appendix removed. Color paintings, which depict such Parisian landmarks as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Luxembourg Gardens, accompany the rhyming text. MADELINE is a 1940 Caldecott Honor Book.
