A charming story about a special girl

Madeline is a story set in Paris in about the smallest girl in a house. She is very brave and daring and loves adventure. In this story she becomes ill and everyone is worried about her. The book was a Caldecot Honor book. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is touching and it is a book that every child should read at some point!!!
It is a part of a series and each one better than the last!


The illustrations of Paris in this book are so great. The story and kids are adorable!
