Madeline and the cats of romeMadeline and the Cats of Rome 

 by John Bemelmans Marciano

The author, John Bemelmans Marciano is the grandson of Ludwig Bemelmans, author of the original Madeline books. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, and he has carried on the tradition with a sure hand.  While his images honor the tone of his grandfather’s marvelous works, they have a light spirit about them which remains contemporary.
