Madeline was my favorite cartoon/book character as a child. I have more memories of watching the show than reading the books, but I've been informed of my love for both. It's not too surprising, is it? I think it triggered something in my child brain to hold a love for travel, and France in this case, as I grew older. There are plenty of other life lessons learned from the small girls as well. It's something that's come full circle, especially with age and even while adopting illustration styles. Even now I find myself watching the children's show on YouTube as I work. It's still cute and creative and inspiring as a twenty year old. Why not?
