Madeline in America and Other Holiday Tales
Madeline in America and Other Holiday Tales is an illustrated collection of short stories by Ludwig Bemelmans, with only one of the stories featuring the popular children's character Madeline. This collection was first published in 1999 and features stories previously published in other publications, with artwork by Ludwig Bemelmans' grandson, John Bemelmans-Marciano.
In the main tale, Madeline's great grandfather dies, leaving her a sizable inheritance. She, Miss Clavel, and her schoolmates visit America, and have a wonderful vacation. To her disappointment, however, Madeline finds that she cannot actually claim her new wealth until her 21st birthday, and subsequently returns to school with Miss Clavel.
