John Bemelmans Marciano signs "Madeline and the Old House in Paris" and "The Nine Lives of Alexander Baddenfield"

13 Sep 2013

When Lord Cucuface, head of Madeline's school, takes a telescope from the attic during a surprise inspection, its ghostly owner convinces Madeline to help get it back, with help from neighbor Pepito and her fellow orphans.

Alexander Baddenfield is a horrible boy--a really horrible boy--who is the last in a long line of lying, thieving scoundrels. One day, Alexander has an astonishing idea. Why not transplant the nine lives from his cat into himself? Suddenly, Alexander has lives to spare, and goes about using them up, attempting the most outrageous feats he can imagine. Only when his lives start running out, and he is left with only one just like everyone else, does he realize how reckless he has been.
With its wickedly funny story and equally clever illustrations, this is dark humor at its most delicious.
