Miss Clavel is thrilled when the Spanish Ambassador and his son, Pepito, move into the neighborhood, but Madeline knows right away that the boy is a Bad Hat. He tries to impress her, but Madeline wants nothing to do with him. Then one day his plans backfires. Will a run-in with an angry cat be enough to reform this Bad Hat?

Pepito has moved far away, and he misses Madeline. To help celebrate his birthday, Miss Clavel and the girls travel to England to pay him a visit. Seeing Pepito is so much fun, and he and Madeline have a wild adventure when his new horse takes them on an unplanned tour of London. But then Pepito's mother says his pet has to go. Will the horse find a new home with twelve little girls and Miss Clavel?

And they've taken Madeline and Pepito with them! Miss Clavel is beside herself, but Madeline and Pepito are having the time of their lives. They don't have to go to school, brush their teeth, or ever go to sleep. But soon Madeline and Pepito start to feel homesick. The gypsies don't want to let them go, so it's up to Miss Clavel to find Madeline and Pepito and bring them home.
