Madame,

Andrew, do you know of the book Ludwig Bemelmans' grandson has written?

Bemelmans: The Life and Art of Madeline's Creator by John Bemelmans Marciano


I am aware of the book but have yet to buy it, he has also continued the work of his grandfather (even if our Madeline wasn't sure about his efforts).

For Georgia I will be delighted to share the location decided on but the decision will not be mine, my daughter will decide, the problem comes if she decides to go to the door... She can be quite determined. We play the reading the book game and she too has it down pat and will correct me.

This holiday is months away ad is already more fun than most.

Thanks,

A

Months away! I think I am as excited to hear about this as your daughter is to see it. Makes me wish I was still a little girl.

Now there's an idea.

Perhaps I can write that book myself...

Of course my artistic talent leaves something to be desired, talent for a start.

Oh I can't wait, a month in France Cool

This could never happen now. The twelve little girls would have their own individual lines to live in... or they would have, but for the credit-crunch / recession.

Andrew, if you write the story, your 4 year old nestling can do the pictures... and be your er, editorial advisor! (She tells you what to write and you do it)!

My three year old want to be in the books.

She's telling everyone to "tell Papa I'm four already" since I told her she can go to Paris once she's four.

And our small town is "Pretending to be Paris..."
