Madeline's Christmas by Ludwig Bemelmans( Book )

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring because of a nasty, contagious illness--even the mouse is in bed with a miserable cold. Only brave Madeline is up and about ... competently running the household until she hears a knock at the door--a visitor whom she suspects might be Santa Claus. Instead it is a magical-rug merchant, with 12 red carpets that Madeline thinks would be perfect for the 12 girls and "For our ice-cold in the morning feet." She procures a few francs from Miss Clavel and pays the merchant. Without his rugs, however, he is very chilly, and he feels quite silly for having sold them. He returns to the old house (still covered in vines), where Madeline helps him thaw out, and he works a little Christmas magic--sending the girls on cross-country carpet rides to surprise their parents. Of course, Miss Clavel's bell breaks the spell and they're all back in time to celebrate the New Year. (Ages 4 to 8)

Madeline in America and other holiday tales by Ludwig Bemelmans( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and Japanese and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1939, readers first picked a fearless little girl named Madeline out of a parade of "twelve little girls in two straight lines." Through six published adventures she rose to every challenge, worried her guardian, Miss Clavel, and earned the affection of millions of Americans. But she never came here to visit ... until now! In time for the sixtieth anniversary of her birth comes one last wonderful story to treasure about the mischievous Madeline. Here readers will learn Madeline's last name, join her and the girls for horseback rides and a tour of the world's greatest store, and get a hint of what lies in Miss Madeline's future. John Bemelmans Marciano discovered Ludwig Bemelmans's manuscript and pencil sketches for Madeline in America waiting for him among his grandfather's files. Now he has lovingly completed what his grandfather began--with full-color paintings done in tribute to the great master. As a further tribute to Ludwig and as a treat for his fans, the book presents two more holiday classics from the Bemelmans archives: The Count and the Cobbler, a gem of a parable about a brilliant baby who engineers a happy holiday for his desperately poor family; and Sunshine, the timeless tale of a music teacher whose greedy landlord wants to evict her on Christmas Eve
