About This Item

London: Andre Deutsch/Derek Verscholyle, 1957. First British edition, early printing of the second book in the Madeline series, which went on to win the Caldecott Medal. Thin quarto, original cloth, illustrated throughout. Boldly signed by Ludwig Bemelmans on the half-title page. In near fine condition. It took Ludwig Bemelmans years to think of Madeline's next adventure after the 1939 original Madeline, but he did it, and the result was Madeline's Rescue, winner of the 1954 Caldecott Medal.

Synopsis

Winner of the Caldecott Medal When Madeline falls into the river Seine and nearly drowns, a courageous canine comes to her rescue. Now Genevieve the dog is Madeline's cherished pet, and the envy of all the other girls. What can be done when there's just not enough hound to go around?
