About this product
- DescriptionLavish illustrations, enchanting settings, and winsome storytelling abound in these three tales by Ludwig Bemelmans, creator of the classic Madeline books. Long out of print, these stories are w available in a single-volume treasury that promises to delight young readers. Hansi recounts a winter holiday in the Alps, in which a city boy travels by horse-drawn carriage to Uncle Herman's house. Hansi helps feed deer in the deep forest, attempts to teach a dachshund to ski, and celebrates Christmas at a candlelight service. Rosebud, based on an African folk tale, depicts a triumph of brain over brawn. A crafty rabbit sets out to prove that he's smarter than the intellectuals of the animal kingdom, the whale and the elephant. The Castle No. 9 offers a humorous portrayal of a faithful servant and his madcap master. In the little Austrian town of Melk, a meticulous manservant-with a cat, a silver candlestick, and a different wig and suit of livery for every day of the week-is hired by a bleman with some peculiar ideas about language.
