When Madeline falls into the River Seine she is rescued by a brave stray dog. Madeline, along with the other orphans and their teacher Miss Clavel, adopt the dog, whom they name Genevieve, and bring back to live with them at the orphanage. However, when the orphanage's board of trustees discovers that a dog is living on the premises, they put Genevieve out on the streets. Determined to get her beloved pet back, Madeline leads the others on a search through all of Paris.

My three year old daughter loves the original Madeline book. This was a nice addition (and new read for us), plus we learned where Genevieve comes into the story! Each page contains just the right amount of text to hold her pre-school attention span.
