Abstract:

"Who is Madame Badobedah? Mabel sets out to prove that an eccentric new hotel guest is really a supervillain in this storybook about an intergenerational friendship. There's a strange new guest at the Mermaid Hotel - a very old lady with a growly voice, bags stuffed with jewelry and coins and curiosities, and a beady-eyed pet tortoise. Mabel, whose parents run the hotel, is suspicious. Who is this Madame Badobedah (it rhymes with Oo-la-la) who has come to stay indefinitely and never has any visitors? To find out, Mabel puts on her spy costume and observes the new guest. Conclusion? She must be a secret supervillain hiding out from the law. The grown-ups think Madame Badobedah is a bit rude - and sad - but when she invites dahlink Mabel for a cup of forbidden tea and a game of pirates, the two begin a series of imaginary adventures together, and Mabel realizes that first impressions can sometimes be very wrong. Conjuring two quirky heroines that young readers will love, the author adds to a grand tradition of books that celebrate the alliance of the old and young in the face of humdrum adults, while the illustrations are packed with intriguing details - just like Madame Badobedah's suitcases." --

Madame Badobedah

by barker_patricia (WorldCat user published 2020-08-28) Very Good Permalink

Kids are going to love this story about a very strange lady who has moved into the Mermaid Hotel. The young girl who lives there thinks she must be a villain, but is she really? Great illustrations, lots of simple suspense and surprises around each corner.
