A Caldecott Honor Book
Madeline truly needs no introduction. An enduring classic, Madeline continues to enchant readers more than seventy years after its first publication.
Nothing frightens Madeline--not tigers, not mice, not even getting sick. To Madeline, a trip to the hospital is a grand adventure.
Set in picturesque Paris, this tale of a brave little girl's trip to the hospital is as appealing today as it was in 1940. The combination of spirited heroine, timelessly appealing art, cheerful humor, and rhythmic text makes "Madeline" a perennial favorite with children of all ages. A Caldecott Honor Book. Full-color illustrations.
