In an old house in Paris, that was covered with vines, lived 12 little girls in two straight lines. In two straight lines they broke their bread, brushed their teeth, and went to bed. They smiled at the good, and frowned at the bad, and sometimes they were very sad. They left the house at half past nine, in two straight lines, in rain, or shine. The smallest one was Madeline.

Yes, it is far too hot here in the nation’s capital city in the coming days to be outside for BBQ’s for “I love it cold!” folks like me. So instead, some cooking inside. A great, fun new children’s book (to be enjoyed by adults as well) about Julia Child’s life is pictured here. My only real question about it was how would students react to the comic book/graphic novel nature of the print and layout. Alas, after rolling of eyes the students (yes, boys as well as girls) I consulted said “Well, it’s no different than a graphic novel or whatever your generation called it…comic books?” Julia’s great personality comes through in a genuine way, it’s a frolic! And it has earned a bright, shiny star from Publishers Weekly.
