“Madlenka” by Peter Sis


“Peeking out through a die-cut window on the jacket, Madlenka invites the reader to enter her world. And what a world it is! On the surface, it looks like an ordinary city block, but as we meet Madlenka’s neighbors — the French baker, the Indian news vendor, the Italian ice-cream man, the Latin American grocer, a retired opera singer from Germany, an African American school friend, and the Asian shopkeeper — and look through die-cut windows to the images and memories they have carried from old country to new, we can see that Madlenka’s block is as richly varied as its inhabitants.”
