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, he ends up leaving her a sizable inheritance. Madeline and her schoolmates, under the supervision of their teacher, Miss Clavel, go to America and have a wonderful vacation. However, in the end, it turns out that, much to Madeline's disappointment, she can't claim the inheritance her great-grandfather left for her until she turns 21. While Madeline, her classmates and their teacher ultimately return to Paris, Madeline vows to eventually return to America.
