Join Madeline and the other 11 little girls in two lines on a new adventure to America. Candle Randall is the only child of the President and she is a very lonely little girl. That is, until Madeline, Miss Clavel, and the other girls all come to visit. Take a magical journey through our nation's capital to some of the most noteworthy landmarks with Madeline and her new friend!
Readers will see Washington, D.C., as never before, when Madeline takes a midnight sightseeing tour on a magic carpet of cherry blossoms. Invited to the White House by Candle, the president's lonely only daughter, for the annual Easter Egg hunt and roll, Madeline and the other little girls have a rollicking good time, and introduce Candle to the joys of occasionally breaking the rules. With a bouncy read-aloud text and gorgeous watercolor pictures, Madeline at the White House is in the best tradition of the beloved Madeline books.
