Format: Paperback
"In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines, lived 12 little girls in two straight lines" starts this classic rhyming book with sumptuous drawings of Paris. The story of Madeline, a little orphan girl who gets into the most hair-raising scrapes (always in rhyme) is a delight to read to children and one which they soon be reciting back to you. This is the one where she has her appendix out, and it will surely lead you to the rest of these classic childrens books, each beautifully illustrated by the author. My kids have read them since they were 3 and still return to them now they are 6 & 8, often reciting the final page... "and she turned out the light, and closed the door, and that's all there is, there isn't any more."

I remember reading this book as a child over and over again. A most delightful book and I feel it a must for all young readers. Madeline's antics made me giggle and I have bought it for my grandchildren. I hope that they, and all the other young readers of this book, get the same enjoyment that I did all those years ago.

My daughter (and son) loved Madeline. We have several of the books from the series and they are well thumbed and loved from constant bedtime reading. I could probably recite Madeline by heart! Madeline can be naughty and mischievous and brave and kind .... probably most suitable for children ages 3 - 7 years. Alas, my children are entering their teens but we have kept the books as they are too precious to part with. I am now buying them for my nieces.

I like this book but I'm giving it 4 stars because, as I state in the title, my son hasn't found it at all interesting and hasn't once asked me to read it. However, this has more to do with my boy rather than the book, as he is more keen on stories that involve dinosaurs, monsters, pirates and trucks.

Great book, lovely illustrations, a must-have classic for any child's library. I tend to buy these for birthday presents for my daughter's friends, as I don't think you can go wrong with a classic book such as this.

The illustrations, the text, the stories, all the Madeline books are just right for children learning to read. They're fun, they're colourful and they're memorable. I loved them as a child and I'm now happy to be able to pass buy them for today's young readers.

Ibought this for my grandaughter who is just beginning to show an interest in books. Both of my children had enjoyed it when little just as I did when small. The rhyme is great and it's a good tale too.

This is my favorite book of all time. I am ten years old and I still love Madeline! Miss Clavell teaches Madeline that she can do anything that she makes up her mind to do. I think every kid would love Madeline!
