About This Book

Ludwig Bemelmans spent his first Christmas in America as an immigrant at Ellis Island. From then on, the creator of the beloved Madeline books retained a special fondness for the holiday. Collected here are several marvelous holiday pieces: Madeline in America, first published in McCall's magazine in 1955 and now presented with Ludwig's original drawings, rendered in glorious full color by John Marciano in his grandfather's style. It's a rip-roaring Texas adventure with all the elements that readers have come to love and expect from Miss Clavel and the 12 little girls in two straight lines. . . . In this book we are also bringing back the wonderful "Sunshine," Bemelmans' timeless (and now timely!) tale of a music teacher whose greedy landlord wants to evict her from her apartment on the eve of Christmas. The collection will also have pieces that Bemelmans did for other magazines, and a touching family reminiscence from his wife, daughter, and grandson.
