Another great Madeline story!
on October 25, 2012
"In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines." In 1939, Ludwig Bemelmans began writing stories about a group of girls in a school in Paris, foremost among whom was the irrepressible Madeline. Those books are now considered classics in children's literature, having collected many awards.
In this Madeline adventure, when the Spanish Ambassador moves in next door, Madeline quickly realizes that his son is definitely a "bad hat." The young man, named Pepito, loves playing tricks - the nastier, the better. But, when a particularly nasty trick backfires on him, Pepito learns a very hard lesson!
This is another great Madeline story. I liked the gentle rhyming of the story, and my little reader liked Pepito's adventures and misadventures. So, let's just say that this book is a classic of children's literature for a reason! My little one and I both highly recommend this great book.
