Children's Hardcover Book, Madeline's Rescue, Ludwig Bemelmans, Illustrated, Collectible, Picture Book, Classic
A wonderful children's hardcover book titled Madeline's Rescue written and illustrated by Ludwig Bemelmans.
Madeline is one of the best-loved characters in children's literature. It took Ludwig Bemelmans years to think of Madeline's next adventure after the 1939 original Madeline, but he did it, and the result was Madeline's Rescue, winner of the 1954 Caldecott Medal. One day on a walk through Paris, Madeline slips and falls off a bridge right into the Seine. Everyone feared she would be dead except for a brave dog. What choice do Madeline and the other girls have but to take the heroic dog home, feed her biscuits, milk, and beef, and name her Genevieve? Sadly, when Lord Cucuface gets wind of the new dog, he decrees that no dogs will be allowed in the old house and kicks Genevieve out on the street. Madeline vows vengeance, and the girls scour Paris looking for the pup. As we've come to expect from Bemelmans, all's well that ends well and young readers will be delighted with this heartwarming, quirky dog story with a surprise finale.
Ludwig Bemelmans (1898 – 1962) was an Austrian American writer and illustrator of children's books and adult novels. He is known best for the Madeline picture books. Six were published, the first in 1939.
