Madeline are the classic stories of Ludwig Bemelmans in which the stories tell the tale of a little red headed girl names Madeline, the smallest of 12 little girls who live with their teacher Miss Clavel. Madeline in America is a never before published story from Bemelmans which was found among his positions by his grandson after his death. Madeline and her friends travel to Texas to claim Madeline¿s new fortune hat was left to her after her great-gandpapa. It is a classic Bemelmans Christmas taleWhen I first found out about this book I went nuts! I loved Madeline as a child. When I read that they were the original drawings and original script, I was overjoyed to here that nothing would be different from what I remember. I am so glad I found this book! I loved this book just as much as much as I loved the original ones! It¿s a great tale to read at Christmas time or anytime of the year to keep that good old fashion Madeline Christmas spirit alive!
This story is wonderfully cute, and sweet enough to melt the coldest heart
