Madeline and the Bad Hat

Madeline and the Bad Hat

by Ludwig Bemelmans Illustrated by Ludwig Bemelmans

Madeline's fun-loving spirit and bold personality get her into the greatest adventures. In these five books she turns a trip to the hospital into a grand adventure, tumbles into the river Seine only to be rescued by a fearless dog, runs off to join the circus— and that's just the beginning! Thanks to humorous, lyrical text, breathtaking artwork, and a spunky redhead named Madeline, these books have timeless appeal and perennial popularity.
