Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines," lives plucky Madeline with eleven other girls under the care of the kind Miss Clavel. Madeline wakes up in the night with appendicitis and is rushed off to the hospital. The other girls visit Madeline after the operation, and see her gifts, her candy, and above all, her scar. That night they all cry, "Boohoo, we want to have our appendix out too!" Bemelman's drawings of Paris bring the charm of the city to young readers.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
As with last year's pop-up version of Beatrix Potter's Two Bad Mice, this book seems born to the form. A spread showing ``the old house in Paris'' has lift-open windows so that the ``twelve little girls in two straight lines'' can be viewed; Madeline leans forward to ``pooh-pooh'' the zoo tiger and teeters on the wall ``to frighten Miss Clavel.'' When Miss Clavel turns on her light, readers can pull the tab and banish the darkness. And Madeline's hospital stay, with movable doll carriage and a tossable ball, looks enviable indeed. With all the bustling in these pages and tabs to tug, the book will immerse both old fans and new readers in the joys of knowing Madeline. Ages 3-8. (September)
Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
This is a children's classic. Madeline, the spunky heroine, becomes ill with appendicitis and must be rushed to the hospital. After her operation, Madeline awakens to a "room with flowers" and a window from which she can watch the world as she recovers and receives visits from her friends. 1993 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-K Horror of horrors! A pop-up book based on an all time favoriteLudwig Bemelman's classic Madeline. Yet admittedly, it is rather fun to pull a tab and see Madeline pooh-pooh the tiger in the zoo, or Miss Clavel turn on her light, or the doctor carry Madeline in his arm in a blanket safe and warm. Madeline herself would be delighted. All of the favorite scenes are here. The only scenes missing are the beginning illustrations of the 12 little girls in 2 straight lines breaking their bread, brushing their teeth, going to bed, and smiling at the good and frowning at the bad. While pop-up books may not withstand extended circulation, librarians who work with the very young in story hours will find this book a wonderful way to introduce children to Madeline and her world.

    There is a reason that this is a classic

    We have a long commute in our car to & from school, so we listen to children's books on CD to break up the time. Both of my kids, a 7 year old boy & a 3 year old girl enjoy listening to this, as does the rest of our carpool, ranging in ages up to 7. It is a classic that is just as enjoyable as when I read it when I was little.

    Great Series

    Every little girl loves Madeline books. There is something appealing about the repetition from book to book. Children love the fact that they can remember part of the books from one to the other because they repeat. A few books from this series with a Madeline doll make a great gift.

    Madeline

    'Madeline' by Ludwig Berrelmans is a book about a little girl named Madeline. She lives with 12 other little girls. Madeline is the smallest of the group. This is a book about how Madeline's appendix was hurting her. The doctor took Madeline to the hospital. Find out if Madeline feels better...I love this book because it is inspiring to me. I love the adventures that Madeline takes. Madeline is a good main character because she is a very nice character.

    Madeline

    'Madeline' by Ludwig Bemelmans is a book about a girl named Madeline. Madeline is a very cute girl who always wears a skirt. Madeline always goes away from the group, until... I love this book because Madeline wears yellow and my favorite color is yellow too. I also like how Madeline's friends treat her. They are very nice to her. Madeline is the smallest girl of the group. Even though Madeline is the smallest she is not scared of many things.

    A reviewer

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It was fun to read and get into the story. The pictures also made it very easy to follow along. I think its a great book for girls as well as boys to read.

    A great book for beginning readers

    I have loved this book since hearing it, then reading it for myself at three and a half years of age. The meter lends itself to memorization, and the story is as good for boys as it is for girls.

    Great for little girls who've had their appendix out!

    This book was purchased as a gift for my 2 1/2 year old daughter while she was in the hospital recovering from an appendectomy. She instantly loved it and likes to see that she and the Madeline doll have the same scar! This book and doll helped make having major surgery much less scary for her.

    MADELINES REVIEW

    IT WAS SHORT AND HUMOROUS.THE PICTURES IN PARIS WAS GREAT. SMALLER CHILDREN MAY FIND COURAGE IN THIS BOOK IF THEY HAVE THOSE SAME FEARS OF HOSPITALS. MADELINE WAS A GOOD BOOK.

    a charming and memorable book

    i chose to read this book many years ago [50+] in summer camp, mostly because its name is the same as mine, and i had never before seen my name in print. i loved it immediately and still remember some of its text and illustrations.
