Ludwig Bemelmans is best known for his Paris-set “Madeline” books, but “Sunshine,” first published in 1950, is his ode to New York City. Mr. Sunshine is very picky about who can rent his apartment — he wants someone quiet, with no pets and who will pay rent on time. Miss Moore seems a perfect tenant — until it turns out she runs a music school.
The illustrations will be familiar to “Madeline” lovers, as will Bemelmans’ rhythmic rhyme.
