MADELINE AND THE BAD HAT

illustrated by , by

KIRKUS REVIEW

More nonsense about Madeline (of Madeline's Rescue and the Caldecott Award) versifies her encounters with the Spanish Ambassador's son who, when he is not trying to impress the little girls at Madeline's school, is off being mean to animals. But along with some scrapes and scratches he suffers a change of heart when a trick backfires and the girls come to the rescue. The Bemelmans colored pictures present a panorama of Paris that is far more humorous and amusing than the awkwardly rhymed and ordinary story. Bemelmans is usually cleverer than he is here. Fair stitching.
