Seventy-five years ago, a spirited little red-headed girl stepped out of the pages of a book and into the hearts of readers. Madeline may have been the smallest of the twelve little girls who always walked in two straight lines, but she was the bravest—to the tiger in the zoo, Madeline just said “poo poo”.
Madeline went on to inspire eight sequels, as well as television and movies, dolls and teasets and games. She is loved by millions of readers all over the world.
To commemorate this anniversary, this lavish slipcased edition of the original Madline book includes a full-color panoramic pop up spread of Paris, with all the famous landmarks, including Madeline’s house.
Happy 75th birthday, Madeline!
