Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Lucy and Madhouse Canteen by Heiki Vilep is a charming story for children. The stories that revolve around Lucy, Madeline and Tim take readers through interesting experiences, places and happenings. Each story has its own charm and whether it is the story of the 'Madhouse Canteen,' or the three of them becoming famous writers, or the other stories, children are treated to some sort of mischief, humor or adventure which will keep them entertained until the very end. Lucy, Tim and Madeline will steal the hearts of young readers with their antics, and their parents and grandparents complement them beautifully in all the stories.

I enjoyed the collection of stories in the book. Kids are introduced to new ideas and concepts that will make them more creative and imaginative. The illustrations complement the stories beautifully by giving pace and movement to the scenes and life to the characters. Each story takes readers through the different experiences of Lucy, Madeline and Tim. Parents and grandparents can use it as a bedtime storybook for their kids and grandkids. The stories can also be used for read aloud sessions in school libraries and classrooms. The author's writing style is fluid and laced with humor that makes the stories enjoyable. Kids will love Lucy, Madeline and Tim and also Ed by the time they finish reading.
