Madeline's Rescue

by Ludwig Bemelmans, and published by Viking



Madeline's Rescue continues the gay boarding-school adventures in Paris of the earlier Madeline, with the dog Genevieve rescuing little Madeline from the Seine. The richly detailed and lively doublespreads, with clear Parisian landmarks, have fine, full-color reproduction and with equally humorous and original two-color sketches and rhymed text tell a story.
