As an adult, every time I hear the name "Madeline," I automatically start reciting, "In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines. In two straight lines they broke their bread and brushed their teeth and went to bed. They left the house at half past nine, in two straight lines in rain or shine- the smallest one was Madeline."Remember the adorable red-haired pipsqueak who had to be rushed to get her appendix out? If you were raised anything like we were, then you read the Madeline books, had Madeline dolls, and watched the Madeline movie about the sweet little French girl. And now, you can dress up, ModCloth style, as Madeline for Halloween!
