Based on the popular story books by Ludwig Bemelmans, the mischievous Madeline character is brought to vivid life in this charming family adventure. Madeline and her eleven friends live at a school run by Miss Clavel in an old house in Paris. The smallest of the girls, Madeline, is also the most adventurous! She loses her appendix but gains an awesome scar, falls into the River Seine only to be rescued by a dog named Genevieve, and matches wits with Pepito, the devilish son of a Spanish Ambassador who moves in next door. However, when stuffy Lord Covington puts the future of the school in jeopardy, it's up to Madeline and her friends to save the day!
