About the book:
Madeline is one of the best-loved characters in children's literature. Set in picturesque Paris, this tale of a brave little girl's trip to the hospital was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1940 and has as much appeal today as it did then. (more)

My Review: 4 stars
Well I personally like this book (who doesn't?!) the cartoons and real life movie adaptation are a keeper. I came across and started reading this book again after watching Anthony Burdain's show then I had multiple flashbacks lol ;)) this book is a total classic! the illustrations are so cute and the dialogues are simple to understand everyone should definitely read and expose themselves to the works of Ludwig Bemelmans!
