Overview

In an old house in Paris
that was covered with vines
lived twelve little girls
in two straight lines
the smallest one was Madeline.” 
 
 
Nothing frightens Madeline—not tigers, not even mice. With its endearing, courageous heroine, cheerful humor, and wonderful, whimsical drawings of Paris, the Madeline stories are true classics that continue to charm readers even after 75 years!

Pepito has moved to England. To help celebrate his birthday, Miss Clavel and the girls pay him a visit. When his mother won't let Pepito keep one of his birthday presents—a horse—Madeline is more than willing to help out.

Ludwig Bemelmans (1898-1962) was the author of the beloved Madeline books, including Madeline, a Caldecott Honor Book, and Madeline's Rescue, winner of the Caldecott Medal.

Pepito has to go to London with his family, but he becomes ill because he misses his friends. In response, the ambassador, Pepito's father, sends for the girls and Miss Clavel to stay with them in London. They bring a horse as a present, and the horse causes chaos, eating all the flowers in the garden. The girls care for the horse and take it home. This book has great illustrations, and the rhyme scheme flows really well.
