We just like the Madeline series, and plan to collect all of them.

Published after the author's death, it is a beautiful book. It gives a glimpse of how the author worked, as some pages are not refined as they would have been had he lived to complete it in his usual style. With Christmas near, in a houseful of sick kids and Miss Clavel, only Madeline is well. She takes charge. Artwork and rhyming prose are perfectly matched as always.

This book teaches kids that generosity will lead to great things. If you give, then you will receive. Madeline takes care of a freezing cold carpent salesman/magician, and he rewards the girls by flying them home on magic carpets to be with their families on Christmas day. Generosity goes a long way! The Madeline books are so great!

Everyone is sick at Christmas, except for Madeline, who's been caring for everyone. When a rug merchant sells her all his rugs, he realizes it's too cold outside without them. On returning, he proves to be a magician, and he turns the rugs into carpets to take all the girls home to their families for Christmas.I just had a couple of problems- first of all- doesn't Madeline not have a family? Second- the girls are still sick and it's snowing really badly outside. Third- who's taking care of Mrs. Clavel while everyone's gone- the magician who's now alone in the house with her? Well, at least everyone's back for the New Year at the end...
