Ah Madeline is fully recovered and back in action in this fun book! When the Spanish Ambassador moves in next door to the twelve little girls in two straight lines, they sat and marveled at the scene. He had a son Pepito, and all the girls are pleased except of course, Madeline. She quickly became aware of his unpleasant behavior and nicknamed him "the Bad Hat." She is fearless and not about to sit back and let Pepito get away with murder. She called him a "horrid brat" and said she was keeping an eye on him.
Lucky for us, there's 4 more Madeline books in the collection, all of which are entertaining and hilarious!
