Bemelman's is justly recognized for the Madeline books, but he is so much more. And his trenchant observations about his countrymen and Americans, about tourists and locals, the state of Europe and of America in mid-century, and his dissection of class differences is done with literary style and also some of his wonderful scratchy drawings thrown in. But it is the words themselves that carry the day.
