It starts out as a fun day at the Gypsy Carnival for Madeline, her schoolmates, Pepito, and Miss Clavel. It ends with a brisk wind, a sudden rain storm and Madeline and Pepito left behind! Madeline and Pepito join the carnival as traveling performers. Miss Clavel is beside herself with worry until she receives a postcard from the missing children. She races to the rescue and brings the children back home again. All's well that ends well.
Another exciting Madeline adventure written by Ludwig Bemelmans and chock full of his signature illustrations. This is the hardcover edition of the book.
