Madeline’s Christmas in board book format at last!
It’s the night before Christmas, and everyone in the old house in Paris is sick in bed. All except brave Madeline, who is up and about and feeling just fine.
Taking care of eleven little girls and Miss Clavel is hard work, but Madeline finds help from a magical merchant peddling flying carpets door-to-door. Now the girls are going on a Christmas journey that will surely make them forget their sniffles and sneezes.
Madeline once again exhibits the spunk and vitality that have made her one of the most popular children’s book characters of all time. Bemelmans’s humorous verse perfectly matches the free-flowing line and vibrant color of his paintings, full of the lights of Paris and the warm glow of holiday cheer.
