My take: This is not the first time I've reviewed a Madeline product but for new readers, if you've not heard of the delightful Madeline, she is a character from a children's book series written by Ludwig Bemelmans in 1939 (the series continues into the modern day, written by Bemelmans' grandson John Bemelmans-Marciano). The DVD adaptations of the books dovetail closely to the written stories, right down to the rhyming so fans of the books will easily relate to the "big screen" version of their favorite Madeline tales. Madeline's Great Adventures is another winning Madeline DVD from Shout! Factory and a must have for your little Madeline fan. My daughter and I sat down recently to watch the DVD. What I liked was the tie-in of Madeline to some classic literature (the tales from the classic Arabian Nights are quite evident throughout); my daughter just liked "spending time" with Madeline, her dog Genevieve and Pepito! If you or your child likes Madeline, be sure to check out this DVD today!
