John Bemelmans Marciano says that “it really, really helped that my grandfather, Ludwig Bemelmans, had created the Madeline books and left a story unfinished for me to work on.” And that Marciano has done. “Madeline at the White House” (Viking Juvenile) is the latest book Marciano has written about the smallest of 12 girls -- and only redhead -- who lives “in an old house in Paris that was covered in vines.” Other books by Marciano include “Toponymity: An Atlas of Words” and “Aponyponymous: The Forgotten People Behind Everyday Words.”
