Author(s): John Bemelmans Marciano
In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines ...Plus, one very unhappy ghost! Madeline's next-door neighbour, Pepito, returns in this lively romp as the two friends set out to find the source of mysterious, ghostly groans in the night. Feisty and fearless as ever, Madeline just says 'pooh-pooh,' and her many fans will cheer with delight in sharing her newest adventure.
