February 2010 Book Club Selection
by Ludwig Bemelmans
Print/braille edition, $7.99
In contracted braille with one tactile drawing of Madeline
Ages 4-9

"In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines" lives plucky
Madeline with 11 other girls under the care of the kind Miss Clavel.
Nothing frightens Madeline - not tigers, not mice, not even getting
sick. Madeline wakes up in the night with appendicitis and is rushed off
to the hospital. The other girls visit Madeline after the operation and
see her gifts, her candy, and above all, her scar. To Madeline,
everything is a grand adventure!

A true classic - and a Caldecott Honor book -  'Madeline' continues to
enchant readers more than sixty years after its first publication. We've
included a tactile drawing of Madeline by artist Ann Cunningham.

And don't miss our Madeline Plush Doll for $9.95!

Barnes & Noble is allowing us to sell their Madeline doll - made
exclusively for their stores - to our Braille Book Club members!

This adorable 9-inch doll perfectly compliments the story book and
tactile drawing of Madeline. Adapted from Ludwig Bemelman's original
drawings, first published in 1939, the Madeline doll comes dressed for
adventure in the character's signature blue coat and yellow hat. By
comparing the 3D doll to the tactile drawing of Madeline in the book,
your child can begin to understand how pictures are composed. It's also
a must-have addition to any child's doll collection!

Bring out Madeline every time you read the book together!
