"Madeleine" has a total of forty-four pictures, of which eight are in color, and the remaining thirty-six are black and white on a yellow background. Except for a flower in the ward, the colorful ones are the street scenes and dramatic scenes of Paris. In film language, they are the distant scenes. For example, on page 9, when the children walk through the Place Vendôme, they encounter a person holding a hat. The police chasing the jewelry thieves. Page 24 An ambulance drove through the street where the Eiffel Tower stood. The black-and-white images with a yellow background are mostly what happened inside the house, such as children brushing their teeth and sleeping.
By the way, there is another fascinating feature of "Madeleine", which is that it paints the landscape of Paris. There is an appendix at the back of the Chinese version and the Japanese version, which indicates which page draws those famous scenes in Paris, such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre, Luxembourg Gardens, and so on.
