Ludwig Bemelmans (1898 – 1962) was an Austria-Hungary-born American writer and illustrator of children's books. He is known best for the Madeline picture books. Six were published since 1939. Madeline and the Bad Hat (1956) appeared in the year after the little known omnibus; My Life in Art in 1958.

This plump omnibus MAD ABOUT MADELINE reprints in full color: "Madeline," "Madeline and the Red Hat," "Madeline's Rescue," "Madeline and the Gypsies," "Madeline in London," and "Madeline's Christmas" [see the illustration for the book's back cover] ... plus a brief selection of early cartoon sketches by Bemelmans of Madeline and a few charming B&W photos of Ludwig and Barbara.
