What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines the smallest one was Madeline.”

Nothing frightens Madeline—not tigers, not even mice. With its endearing, courageous heroine, cheerful humor, and wonderful, whimsical drawings of Paris, the Madeline stories are true classics that continue to charm readers even after 75 years!

When Madeline falls into the river Seine and nearly drowns, a courageous canine comes to her rescue. Now Genevieve the dog is Madeline’s cherished pet, and the envy of all the other girls. What can be done when there’s just not enough hound to go around?

In the Madeline series, this book is about the dog, Genevieve, who rescued Madeline from her fall to the river. When Genevieve is lost, the girls try to find her. Genevieve ends up back home, and all of the girls want Genevieve to sleep in their bed! It turns out that Genevieve has a bunch of pups, so all the girls get their wish to have a dog in their bed at night. :)

Without a doubt the second-best Madeline book, after the original. This is the book that introduces Genevieve the dog! It’s one of my daughters’ favorite books to read together, and I get to enjoy familiar Parisian landmarks in the illustrations!
