This story is about 12 properly poised girls who comes to the fancy Madeline's tea party. Madeline is the youngest of the 12 girls and all are dressed up very formally to attend the tea party.

Many of the girl young readers love the Madeline stories. This one was no exception.
Ludwig Bemelmans published his first Madeline book in 1939. Since then, she has become an unwavering icon of children's literature.

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.

Pepito is still up to no good.
Cute book for early readers. Shows that unacceptable behavior has consequences, while grace is extended in the end. Not bad, all things considered.
