Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-The spunky French schoolgirl has been transformed into a mini "Miss Manners" in this story by the grandson of Ludwig Bemelmans. As she wends her way through the streets of Paris, Madeline spreads a message of kindness and good behavior despite the occasional pillow fight and spilled juice. Is this the same child who dared to say, "Pooh-Pooh" to a tiger at the zoo? The pencil-and-gouache illustrations, reminiscent of the earlier books, suggest that that impish Parisian is still alive and well. While the rhyming text is a litany of all the ways to be very good, some of the verses are a bit awkward. However, the playful illustrations should draw a smile. This is not a new or particularly exciting adventure, but for those who wish to encourage a discussion of manners in a slightly humorous way, Madeline may be a helpful vehicle.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
