KIRKUS REVIEW

Again Madeline! This time the little French orphan takes off with her friend Pepito during a rain storm and finds herself part of a gypsy caravan. For Madeline, the life of the carnival is a distinct relief from the rigors of Miss Clavel's stern if loving discipline at the orphanage. But to the meticulous Miss Clavel, the empty bed in the dormitory is a constant reminder of her missing charge and the need to reclaim her. And Madeline is reclaimed, admitting to herself, finally, that there is a certain satisfaction in being clean, warm, and well looked after. Ludwig Bemelman's whimsical verse and his exuberant color illustrations will delight the ignorant into the world of Madeline and continue to enchant those readers already familiar with Madeline, Madeline's Rescue, and Madeline and the Bad Hat.
