Claudia’s best friend is her doll, Maddalena. Maddalena is very brave, but sometimes she gets scared—especially when Mom and Dad have to be away for awhile— so Claudia lets her climb into bed with her for comfort. She’s not afraid.  en one day the whole family goes on a trip together, and they forget Maddalena at home! Claudia isn’t scared, of course, only worried for poor Maddalena. What can she do?

 

Italian artist Laura Orsolini’s beautiful, vintage-style illustrations bring delight to the pages of this thoughtful story that reminds us it’s never easy to be apart from the ones we love, no matter what our age.
