In an old house in Paris
that was covered with vines

To which I might add:
It’s been seventy-five years since we first read
of Madeline’s adventures
before going to bed.
We might associate the City of Light with springtime, but there’s no bad time to visit Paris in your dreams. In honor of the 75th anniversary of the beloved children’s book, here’s some bedtime inspiration for grownups.
