    This was a charming old Newbery selection Fans of Bemelmans Madeline series will be enchanted, because this is an underrated classic that has a predated peek at the adorable blue dressed, straw hatted sprite, as she is briefly encountered by this book s yo...

    This is really kind of a children s guidebook to Bruges, Belgium There is a great deal of detailed description, and it really gives a good sense of the wonder of visiting a new place We hear all about the girls hotel room spanning than two pages including a large color illustration but it is not until page 17 that we actually learn the names of the girls Melisande and Celeste Coggeshall and the location of this story Over the course of the book we travel to the carillon and the cathedral, we get a riverboat tour of bridges and churches, but we also spend time in the hotel kitchen There is a bit of basic history of Bruges, too The characters we meet include the hotel owner chef and his son Jan, the maitre d hotel, the mayor of Bruges, two lady tourists from Liverpool, and a little schoolgirl later The text starts in a comfortable, meandering way There is no attempt to make things overly concise or simple For example, the second sentence of the book is Two streets and a square of silent unlit houses wandered by, and then, under a street lamp, the driver pointed his whip at a house the one that had a golden basket standing on its roof and stopped his horse in front of it It is perfect for reading aloud, demanding pauses and ...

    This is a nice short book but it just didn t grab my interest that much I think because it was basically a travelogue about Bruges, Belgium and I have no interest in that city the story didn t appeal to me The writing was descriptive an...

    It is a sweet little chapter book I especially enjoyed that the two vacationing English girls, Melisande and Celeste, in Bruges, had the opportunity to meet Bemelmans most famous character, Madeleine.

    A sweet little story about two little sisters staying with their father in a hotel in Paris and the adventures they have there Madeline even makes an appearance, which is frosting on the g teau.

    The Golden Basket by Ludwig Bemelmans is a short novel my husband borrowed through inter library loan I only had access to the book for one evening, during which I devoured the wonderful story of Celeste and Melisande, two sisters who stay for a few days in an inn in Bruges, Belgium with their father.Though the plot of this book is ostensibly about the girls friendships with some of the people they meet at the inn, it is truly a kids travelogue for Bruges During their stay, the girls are taken to a carillon and a cathedral and given a ride on a boat These visits are described in detail, as are general aspects of their visit, such as their arrival in their room at the inn, and the way the sunrise looks on a Belgian morning The descriptive writing is very beautiful, and a complete joy to read aloud.This book also appears to be something of a prequel to Madeline During an outing, Celeste and Melisande encounter a spirited little schoolgirl named Madeleine, who has trouble minding her teachers and says Boo boo boo to everything This character seems to evolve a bit before starring in Madeline, published three years later, but clearly it is the same little girl, with only a few minor changes The back cover of the book shows young Madeleine leaning out of her classmates neat line of march in order to run her hand along a stone wall this illustration could just as easily be a page taken from Madeline itself.With or without this teaser for the Madeline series, The...

    Well, at first I was really wondering what the point of the story was, but then it just developed into a lot of little fun stories, the most exciting of course being the little fiasco near the end Every now and then the author tried to make i...
