    1 thought on “Are You Hungry, Are You Cold

    1. This was a book sale find. What an odd adventure from the author of the Madeline books. In this adult twist, the girl sent to convent school instead tries to burn the place down. It starts idyllically, and quickly takes a turn for the adult as the heroine and her brother observe a soldier and one of their nannies in a haystack. For the remainder of the book, she rebels against her authoritarian French military father, and her neglectful Spanish mother. Involving, but not exactly a romp.

    2. A rather odd adult book. Set in Europe during the war about a rather abusive family growing up in occupied countries. Father was highly ranked in the army so traveled to new places to live. World War 1. Some rather not nice bullying and physical abuse over the growing up lives of the daughter and son of the household. Not something I would usually read. Picked it up after reading all the Madeline books.

    3. Literature of the highest sort, unpredictable and character drivend probably un-publishable today, given some of the characterizations and situations that are covered. Set in time from mid-30's France to post-war occupied Germany, Every principle figure is uniquely despicable.

    4. I read this sometime in the early 70's as a teenager, but the title was actually "Are You Hungry Are You Cold?" Forty years later it still haunts me. I'd like to read it again, but cannot find a copy of it.

    5. Such a heartbreaker, this novel. Abusive parents, feral children, war - and yet as always, Bemelmans tells a story that catches you upuntil the very last page.
