Reading this as an adult, I realized that Madeline was not really an orphan (which is what I thought she was as a child), but instead a child who lived at a boarding school, which was apparently very common in Europe, especially among the upper classes. Kind of sad, but interesting that my mother never disabused me of the notion that she was an orphan (I don't know if we even discussed it).

Who doesn't remember the first few lines from this book?! Brave Madeline isn't scared of mice or heights or tigers in the zoo, and an emergency trip to the hospital turns out to be her grandest adventure yet. The illustrations are simple but memorable, still delightful in today's sea of digital art. One of my very favorite books and a great choice for sharing the classics with young children.

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.
