Publisher's statement: A Caldecott Honor Book Nothing frightens Madeline — not tigers, not mice, not even getting sick. To Madeline, a trip to the hospital is a grand adventure. A true classic, Madeline continues to enchant readers more than sixty years after its first publication. —from Amazon.com
