Overview

Here, collected in one handsome volume, are all the adventures of Madeline, a fearless little girl full of mischief and vitality who is one of the world’s most popular and beloved fictional characters. Madeline, which was first published in 1939, and its five sequels have charmed generations of readers, and become true classics. In each of these books, Bemelmans’ humorous verse, his immortal characters—Miss Clavel, Pepito, the magician, the others—and his wonderful, whimsical drawings of Paris combine to create a memorable reading experience for people of all ages.Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anna Quindlen has written an introduction to the collection, which also includes “The Isle of God,” an essay by Bemelmans on how he invented Madeline, and never-before-published working sketches of Madeline, as well as photos of the Bemelmans family. This edition of Bemelmans's classic is a distinguished new addition to Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features an elegant binding, distinctive gilt edging, decorative endpapers, and a colorful satin-ribbon bookmark. Collectible and durable, these volumes should be the cornerstones of every home library.

This is a gift for my three grand children. They enjoy Madeline and her adventures. It is nice to have all the stories in one book.

Absolutely the best! I am a children's writer and wanted it to read all about the series. It was well worth it.

Madeline contains wonderful stories and memories of my childhood. When I taught kindergarten these were well enjoyed stories that the children liked to hear and talk about. I was so grateful to see now all of the series is in one book. Just in time for me to give to my granddaughter who was born earlier this year. Now I know these stories will be treasured even more.
