More About Ludwig Bemelmans
Ludwig Bemelmans was a painter, illustrator, and writer of more than three dozen books for both adults and children. Born in 1898 in a part of Tirol now known as Merano, Italy, he came to the United States in 1914 and, after spending Christmas Eve on Ellis Island, set up residence in New York City. Before finding his voice as a writer, he worked in a hotel and ran his own restaurant. Later Bemelmans became a novelist and a nonfiction writer, as well as a frequent contributor to The New Yorker (for which he drew many covers), Town and Country, Holiday, and Vogue; and he also wrote a screenplay in Hollywood. He penned the first draft of Madeline on the backs of menus in Pete's Tavern. He is best known for his Madeline books, which rank among the most honored children's books ever. Madeline was named a Caldecott Honor Book; and the first of its five sequels, Madeline's Rescue, won the Caldecott Medal and was a New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year. A world traveler, Bemelmans was renowned as a true cosmopolite, an irreverent and droll chronicler of the incongruous, an elegant man-about-town, a merry observer of the improbable and the absurd. He died in 1962 after completing the sixth story about Madeline, Madeline's Christmas.
Ludwig Bemelmans lived in the state of New York. Ludwig Bemelmans was born in 1898 and died in 1962.

This classic book is great reading to children as soon as they can sit still enough to listen and look. A delightful, warm and imaginative story.
Wonderful book! Apr 14, 2008
My three year old daughter loves this book. After all these years it's still great--nothing beats a classic.
Madeline, Reissue of 1939 edition Jan 28, 2008
My six-year-old granddaughter loves this book. The only complaint is that the illness and hospital visit were frightening to her, but she enjoys hearing it over and over after the first shock. This is her third book in the series, and Madeline's antics are favorites for her.

I purchased this used for under 3.00 for a hardback. It is a gorgeous book and will hold up well to my class of kindergartners. I also purchased the stuffed doll of Madeline character and will use the set as a take-home activity for parent-child interaction.
Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans Jan 21, 2008
This book was a childhood favorite of mine. I purchased this book as a new baby gift to friends who recently had a little girl and had requested favorite childhood books as baby shower gifts. I am glad that the size has remained the same and the color of the illustrations is so wonderful. Who doesn't love Madeline? She represents every girl who is curious and refuses to go along with the crowd. She would rather exercise her independence and, by doing so, gains the respect and admiration of all who meet her.
