Madeline's Rescue - By Ludwig Bemelmans

Written in the form of a poem, this story tells of Genevieve, a dog that saves Madeline from drowning.  The little girls in Madeline's school fight at night about which one gets to sleep with Genevieve, but soon there are enough puppies to go around.  One part I did not like was when Madeline speaks almost disrespectfully to one of the trustees, after they have been told they cannot keep a dog in the school.  The pictures alternate between yellow and white and full color.
