'Ludwig Bemelmans Favorite Stories: Hansi, Rosebud and The Castle No. 9' by Ludwig Bemelmans is a collection of stories from the creator of the classic Madeline books.
Hansi tells the story of a young boy who goes to visit family in the mountains for a winter holiday in the Alps. Their ways are different, but he has fun skiing and feeding deer in the forest.
Rosebud is based on an African folk tale and has a smart rabbit beating brawny animals.
The Castle No. Nine is about a man who gets a job working as a manservant for a quirky nobleman. The nobleman decides to rename things and this has consequences.
The three stories are all a bit different in nature, and the illustration style varies a bit too. I loved Hansi for it's sweet story, but I liked The Castle No. Nine for it's interesting characters.
