MADELINE'S RESCUE

illustrated by , by

KIRKUS REVIEW

The name is magic to an ageless but perennial public for a further adventure in stylized, wistful watercolors and charmingly imperfect rhyme. This time Madeline falls into the Seine and is rescued by a dog, whom she adopts and calls Genevieve. But when inspection time at school comes around, the trustees find Genevieve "very unnecessary and sort of unsanitary" and Genevieve is dismissed. Hunting for her affords glimpses of Paris' famous sectors- until she returns to the twelve little girls and Miss Clavel. A Gallic spirit for an all-American audience.
