Madeline and the Cats of Rome by John Bemelmans Marciano - ADVISABLE

Marciano, John Bemelmans Madeline and the Cats of Rome. Viking (Penguin), 2008. PICTURE BOOK.


Madeline and the girls leave Paris for the sights and sounds of Rome. When the nun's camera is stolen, Madeline picks up the chase and loses herself in the sideways and byways of the bustling city. A gypsy-like girl seems to be her nemesis and challenge.

Ludwig Bemelman's grandson has picked up the Madeline torch and carried the little girl to new sights and fine adventures. I think we will see many more new books in the Madeline series, well worth reading.
