This book has always been a favorite of mine to read. Madeline shows bravery that engages children because we just never know what she will do next. She is unpredictable.

Book description
Bemelmans' rhythmic rhymes make this book a great one for a readaloud with preschoolers or primary-age children. The story is suspenseful enough to be interesting, but not too scary; the illustrations (mainly in tones of yellow) not only support the story, but also offer a view of Paris. A list at the end of the book identifies the Paris locations that are illustrated.
