In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines. In two straight lines they broke their bread and brushed their teeth and went to bed. (from the first line)
Set in picturesque Paris, this tale of a brave little girl's trip to the hospital is as appealing today as it was in 1940. The combination of spirited heroine, timelessly appealing art, cheerful humor, and rhythmic text makes "Madeline" a perennial favorite with children of all ages. A Caldecott Honor Book. Full-color illustrations.
From the Publisher:
A deluxe paperback edition of the Caldecott Honor-winning classic is set in picturesque Paris and follows the tale of brave young Madeline's trip to the hospital after she comes down with appendicitis. Reprint.
Annotation:
Madeline, the mischievous little girl who lives with 11 other girls in a house "in Paris that is all covered with vines," knows no fear and seems to have no end of adventures. Her stories, told in rhyme, have engaged and amused generations of youngsters and their parents. The pictures are bold and colorful.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.
