Review: Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans

Synopsis: Madeline lives in an old house in Paris, covered in vines... - so begins this classic tale. Madeline is a bit precious and bravest of them all - but will her courage see her through a terrible sickness?

Review: I confess I'd never read this book until I found it in a thrift store a week ago. I've heard of it, and I know the basics. It is every bit at charming as it was professed to be. I enjoyed the prose - written in verse - and the story of these special girls and Miss Clavel.
