Ludwig Bemelmans was actually born in 1898 in that part of the Tyrol which is now known as Merano, Italy, and came to the United States in 1914. A painter and illustrator, Bemelmans contributed covers to "The New Yorker," and also started writing fiction. His first children's book, "Hansi," was published in 1934. A world traveler and true cosmopolite, Bemelmans wrote and illustrated "Madeline" in 1939 but had trouble finding a publisher because most editors felt that despite its humorous verse and simple artwork the book was too sophisticated for children (Soon & Schuster originally published the book, although the rest of the series would be published by Viking, Bemelmans usual publisher). Bemelmans named his most popular creation for his wife, Madeleine Freund, whom he had married in 1935. They had a daughter named Barbara, who would provide inspiration for some of the Madeline books.
Thinking that this book was originally written and published in France is a reasonable conclusion given all of the Paris scenes Bemelmans pictures in his book.Read more ›
This book is not just for little girls. Boys can enjoy the story as well.
Kids I know like this book.
I'd recommend this book for new mothers and small children alike!
Madeline is a little girl living in Paris with 11 other small girls, and their teacher Miss Clavel. Madeline is a charming little girl, and see to it that life in the small school is never boring. The story is told on rhymes in a perfectly charming way. You should think that the story might be a little hard to follow for the reader/listener, but the contrary is the truth. Just as it is a cute, charming story it is a great way of introducing rhymes to your children.
Of course, the most funny part is when Madeline is in hospital because of her appendix and all the other 11 girls also want to woke up in the middle of the night, to be taken to the hospital to have a scar on their stomach. It is lovely reading :-)

I love all the Madeline books. My daughter loves this one, I think it's a weird storyline for a young girl to be getting her appendix taken out, but whatever!Published on April 20, 2013 by harlowfawn
