Originally published in 1956 as a special insert in the 1956 Christmas Edition of McCall’s, this is an 1984 edition printing of Madeline’s Christmas.
Madeline returns for more mischief and a merry Christmas adventure! Something is not right with the famous “twelve little girls in two straight lines.” All are sick in bed with head colds except brave Madeline, who must run the school, for even the indomitable Miss Clavel is not feeling very well. But during this Christmas crisis Madeline finds a remarkable helper in the rug selling magician. Soon, his spells have the school Crockett flying back into its cupboard, and twelve rugs flying twelve girls home for the holidays.
In this rediscovered world by Ludwig Bemelmans, Madeline once again exhibits the spunk and vitality that made her one of the most popular children’s book characters of all time. Bemelmans’ humorous verse perfectly matches the free-flowing line and vibrant color of his paintings, full of the lights of Paris and the warm glow of holiday cheer.
