Madeline Says Merci
The Always-Be-Polite Book
In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines
Lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.
Day in, day out, they got along fine
They'd hardly ever shout or whine.
Madeline loves adventure and is not afraid of mice. She loves winter, snow, and ice. And she also knows the secret of being polite is simply to be kind to others. With help from her friends--Miss Clavel, the girls, and even Pepito-Madeline introduces basic ideas such as please and thank you, sharing, cleaning up, and so much more. With its charming illustrations and humorous verse, this new book is a must-have for Madeline fans of all ages.
John Marciano is Ludwig Bemelmans' grandson and the author of Bemelmans: The Life and Art of Madeline's Creator.
