Madeline in America and other holiday tales by Ludwig Bemelmans( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and Japanese and held by 1,616 libraries worldwide
In 1939, readers first picked a fearless little girl named Madeline out of a parade of "twelve little girls in two straight lines." Through six published adventures she rose to every challenge, worried her guardian, Miss Clavel, and earned the affection of millions of Americans. But she never came here to visit ... until now! In time for the sixtieth anniversary of her birth comes one last wonderful story to treasure about the mischievous Madeline. Here readers will learn Madeline's last name, join her and the girls for horseback rides and a tour of the world's greatest store, and get a hint of what lies in Miss Madeline's future. John Bemelmans Marciano discovered Ludwig Bemelmans's manuscript and pencil sketches for Madeline in America waiting for him among his grandfather's files. Now he has lovingly completed what his grandfather began- with full-color paintings done in tribute to the great master. As a further tribute to Ludwig and as a treat for his fans, we are proud to present two more holiday classics from the Bemelmans archives: The Count and the Cobbler, a gem of a parable about a brilliant baby who engineers a happy holiday for his desperately poor family; and Sunshine, the timeless tale of a music teacher whose greedy landlord wants to evict her on Christmas Eve

Of the famous twelve little girls living in two straight lines, the smallest one is fearless Madeline. But something is not right at the boarding school in Paris run by Miss Clavell: the house next door is now the Spanish Embassy, kind Lady Covington has died, and Lord Covington is busily plotting to sell the school! Madeline springs into action - befriending the lonely Spanish boy next door, refusing to eat a chicken she has personally met, and facing down Lord Covington as he escorts a prospective buyer through the school. Madeline's perceptiveness, courage, and willingness to stick to her principles--along with Miss Clavell's calm reserve--allow everyone to face their fears with similar aplomb, to thus save both the day, and the school
