I have always had a thing for the tiny Madeline. Ludwig Bemelmans created the character in 1939. Being a regular contributor to The New Yorker, Vogue, Holiday, and Town & Country magazines, he considered himself as an artist illustrator rather than a writer, but the impetuous little girl got so much success he wrote up to 6 books. And after he disappeared, his son John Bemelmans-Marciano took over and continued to imagine new adventures. 
What I particularly love are the illustrations. I admire the very naive and simple way Bemelmans has to create an ambiance: with a few lines, he can take you to Paris or London. It is simple as a Children World. 
And who can resist this tiny little girl's attitude? She is fancy but still adventurous, and spunky, a real 7 year old Free Spirit!
