This book transports the readers young and old to a slightly different place and time. Yet watching little Madeline makes it familiar because she is like the kid in all of us.

So good, so classic, I named my firstborn after this plucky heroine francaise. At first glance, the art work seems mere gesture -- but what resonating lines they become... Those yellow pages etch into memory ... thousands agree.
