I have a definite fondness for this little red-headed girl and it has everything to do with her sweet personality, awesome friends, adorable yellow walking outfit, and French accent!  It’s no surprise to me that she has captivated children and adults alike for over 70 years!

In this upcoming DVD release of The Madeline Movie: Lost in Paris, Madeline finds herself in a place she’s always dreamed of – she learns from a man who says he is her long-lost uncle that she has a family!   Her dreams of having a real family are about to come true for this little orphan.  Her uncle will take her to go live with them and have a wonderful life full of love, just what she’s always wanted!

Madeline is sad to leave her beloved friends and Miss Clavel, but how can she resist the lure of a real home?  So off she goes.  The place that her charming new  “uncle” takes her to, however, is not a home – it’s a nightmare!  Will Madeline’s friends be able to find her and save her from her un-happily ever after?

A Mom’s Thoughts

We really enjoyed this sweet Madeline movie!  I already love Madeline’s character, the way the girls at Miss Clavel’s all love each other (“We love our bread, we love our butter, but most of all we love each other!”), and the French accents.  This adventure was imaginative and heartwarming.

There are a couple of scenes that could be a little scary, but I don’t think it is too scary.  Madeline is abducted and made to work for the mean, gray-haired Madame LaCroque (the voice of Lauren Bacall) who carries scissors as big as she is almost (haha), but Madeline is very brave and that makes the “scary” moments less so.

Final Thoughts: I think this one is worth adding your child’s DVD library.  You’ll enjoy seeing this classic TV character on your screen, and I suspect your children will, too.  :-)  It releases on April 13th.
