Ludwig Bemelmans--legendary bon vivant and raconteur, and author of the Madeline stories as well as the surprise success of last year, Hotel Bemelmans--lived life like a character in a novel. Wherever Ludwig went and whatever he did--letting Parisian criminals baby-sit his daughter, getting caught with his toenails painted red by the Gestapo, or discovering the only restaurant with toilets in the Amazon Jungle--his escapades are guaranteed entertainment.
When You Lunch with the Emperor collects Bemelman's work under the headings of Childhood, Work, and Play. Readers will enjoy their lunch with the Bemelmans!
