I enjoyed this book because there was a cake and I like cake. I also enjoyed this book because I like Madeline books.
Ludwig Bemelmans published his first Madeline book in 1939. Since then, she has become an unwavering icon of children's literature. With these new easy readers, Bemelmans' grandson John Bemelmans Marciano is appealing to younger readers. In Madeline's Tea Party the tiny Parisian hosts a tea party.

Madeline hosts a tea party in which the Bad Hat comes and spoils things. She is still Madeline though, meaning she forgives by the end of the story and shows her usual sunny spirit and bright way of handling things. Cute story, not the best in the series but still fun.
Cute book for early readers. Shows that unacceptable behavior has consequences, while grace is extended in the end. Not bad, all things considered.
