Madeline and the Old House in Paris


Remember those twelve little girls in two straight lines . . . familiar images from those classic Madeline’s adventures?
The gals are back.
So is famous Madeline, this time in Madeline and the Old House in Paris (Viking, $17.99).
John Bemelmans Marciano faithfully continues the tradition created by his grandfather, Ludwig Bemelmans, with a spirited mystery set in the old house in Paris. Madeline returns as she and her mischievous neighbor, Pepito, investigate strange noises in the attic. They soon discover it is haunted by the ghost of an astronomer who lived many centuries before, who became a ghost while waiting to see a comet that reappears only every 321 years. The comet is about to return, but his telescope has gone missing, stolen by the wicked Lord Cucuface.Madeline and Pepito, a fearless pair, set out to recover the missing telescope which will help put their new ghostly friend at rest. Feisty and fearless as ever, Madeline just says “pooh-pooh” and her many fans will cheer with delight in sharing her newest adventure, filled with all the charm readers have come to expect from the beloved Madeline books.
Eloise needs to keep resting.
