My 5 year old, Miss I, has fallen head over heels in love with the Madeline stories and I couldn’t be more proud. I’ve always loved Madeline, and France has a very special place in my heart after studying abroad as a child. Although I love the full color covers of each original book, this treasury is beautifully bound in yellow bonded leather and has special extras like gilt edging, picturesque endpapers, and a silky blue ribbon bookmark. The Madeline plush is a recent addition to our collection, and Miss I was delighted to see that the Madeline doll actually has an tiny embroidered appendix scar under her coat and dress!
