Reading this as an adult, I realized that Madeline was not really an orphan (which is what I thought she was as a child), but instead a child who lived at a boarding school, which was apparently very common in Europe, especially among the upper classes. Kind of sad, but interesting that my mother never disabused me of the notion that she was an orphan (I don't know if we even discussed it).

This book transports the readers young and old to a slightly different place and time. Yet watching little Madeline makes it familiar because she is like the kid in all of us.

So good, so classic, I named my firstborn after this plucky heroine francaise. At first glance, the art work seems mere gesture -- but what resonating lines they become... Those yellow pages etch into memory ... thousands agree.
