Madeline's Back!!! What a wonderful treat - after the stories began in 1939, this is the newest installment in the series written by Bemelmans' grandson, John Marciano. Madeline and the Cats of Rome is excellent! Just like the older Madeline's - she is off an an adventure, complete with rhymes and her new found set of orphans - cats!! I loved this and I am glad that Marciano is taking over!!
