    Cooper's review for Madeline's Rescue

    Artistically it is beautiful, mixing expressive and energetic line drawings with the occasional full-color painting quite effectively. The story mixes very comic elements (like the girls all fighting over who will have the dog sleep on their bed, while their harried nurse keeps getting up in the night as always) and elements of true poignancy, like when the dog is lost. We see Madeline in her window looking at the empty streets, sighing 'Oh Genevieve, where can you be? Genevieve, please come back to me.' The direct, sad, but unsentimental tone of this moment is really moving. Overall, a most satisfying tale indeed, both in story and in art, with a happy ending that is sure to please. This book won the Caldecott Medal in 1954 and it¿s for ages 4-8.

    How far would you go to save your pet?

    This story is about a young girl named Madeline and her dog Genevieve. Genevieve saved Madeline's life once and now the dog is ordered out of the school and away from Madeline. Just how far will Madeline go to return the favor and save Genevieve's life now? This is a story that readers will never tire of. Children will love it because they will be able to asscoiate with Madeline and how she feels when her beloved pet is taken away from her. Ludwig Bemelmans, author and illustrator of more than 40 books for children and adults, was born in the Austrian Tyrol on April 27, 1898. Bemelmans married Madeleine Freund in 1935. Bemelmans said that watching his daughter gave him many of the inspirations for his Madeline books. This story would be great for second to fourth grade readers and fits into the fantasy category.

    Have you ever had a special pet that you loved very much?

    Have you ever experienced the feelings of sadness that follow the loss of a special pet? If you have, you will love this story. This is a story about a little girl, Madeline, who lives at a girl¿s school with her teacher, Miss Clavel, the other students and a dog she loves named Genevieve. Genevieve once saved Madeline¿s life and was beloved by all, especially Madeline. The drama in the story occurs when an order from the board of Directors banishes Genevieve from the school. The ever alert Miss Clavel realizes that, ¿Something is not right¿ and begins a search. This is a timeless tale that has not lost any of it¿s appeal since it was first written in 1953.
