Madeline and the Gypsies
Madeline and the Gypsies is a children's picture book by Ludwig Bemelmans. It features popular children's character Madeline. It was first published in 1959 by Viking Press under the Viking Juvenile imprint.
Pepito, the son of the Spanish Ambassador, invites Madeline and her fellow students to a Gypsy carnival. However, in the chaos caused by a sudden rainstorm, Miss Clavel and the other girls lose sight of Madeline and Pepito, who are unintentionally left behind on the Ferris wheel. The two children find themselves guests of the gypsies, and soon wind up part of the carnival themselves.
In 2008, it was adapted into a musical, with script by Barry Kornhauser and score by Michael Koerner, which premiered at The Children's Theater Company in Minneapolis, MN.
