Madlenka--that cosmopolitan little girl whose city block is a world of its own--is back and ready to play When she dribbles her brand new soccer ball out the door and around the corner, it seems that everyone wants to get in the game--the mailbox, a dog, even a parking meter, but especially all the neighborhood cats, and there are enough of them to make a team. But they're no match for Madlenka, who scores the winning goal.
Three-time Caldecott Honoree Peter Sis rides the rising tide of soccer enthusiasm to score another winner.
