This is a nice little story about a brave, plucky little girl, but what really elevates it into a true classic are the illustrations. Madeline and her classmates (in "two straight lines") have some of the most famous landmarks in Paris as a backdrop for their adventures. My children now know what the Pont Neuf, Montmartre, and of course the Eiffel Tower look like, even if they don't know that they know.
