Author(s): John Bemelmans Marciano
Readers will see Washington, D.C., as never before, when Madeline takes a midnight sightseeing tour on a magic carpet of cherry blossoms. Invited to the White House by Candle, the president's lonely only daughter, for the annual Easter Egg hunt and roll, Madeline and the other little girls have a rollicking good time, and introduce Candle to the joys of occasionally breaking the rules. With a bouncy read-aloud text and gorgeous watercolor pictures, Madeline at the White House is in the best tradition of the beloved Madeline books.
"Kids will get a big kick out of seeing familiar buildings the Lincoln Memorial, Capitol and Washington Monument from the perspective of these two lively girls."--"Children's Literature" "Marciano closes with a note linking this spinoff to his grandfather's unfinished work . . .This homage offers a reasonably seamless continuation of the classic series"--"Kirkus Reviews ""
