Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

'In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines

lived twelve little girls in two straight lines...'

It's Christmas Eve, and Miss Clavel and her charges are all in bed with colds. All except Madeline, who answers the door to a rug-seller. But when she discovers that the rug-seller is also a magician, the little girls are whisked away on a magic Christmas carpet ride!

The small but feisty heroine, Madeline, and her charming Parisian world have been loved by children and adults alike for over seventy years.

"Originally published in the USA as a special book insert in the 1956 Christmas ed. of McCall's magazine"--t.p. verso.

Publishers Weekly Review

Madeline joined the company of story immortals in 1939, when Bemelmans introduced the lion-hearted French child to the world. The original and five sequels excited critical raves, awards and an international readership. Now the sixth saga, reprinted from a McCall's magazine feature, will be offered as a book. On Christmas Eve, the old house in Paris, covered with vines, is also swarming with germs. Miss Clavel and her charges, except Madeline, are downed by the flu. So the littlest of the 12 girls nurses the ailing ones but a mysterious caller arrives with the promise of turning a sad Yuletide into an adventure. Madeline buys 12 rugs from the turbaned visitor and tucks them around the chilly invalids until she discovers that the covers are more than comforting. They are magic. They take Madeline and her friends on a wonderful flight, bringing back the joys of the season. (38) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
