Madlenka

$7.99

Madlenka by Peter Sis.

Madlenka peeks out through a die-cut window on the jacket and invites the reader to enter her world. Madlenka has lost a tooth and wants to let everyone know!  So she takes a trip around the block and meets her neighbors — the French baker, the Indian news vendor, the Italian ice-cream man, the Latin American grocer, a retired opera singer from Germany, an African American school friend, and the Asian shopkeeper — and through the die-cut window you see the images and memories her neighbors have carried from old country to new.

Madlenka is a 2000 New York Times Book Review Notable Children’s Book of the Year.
