On November 11, 2004 Madonna made a very rare personal appearance at Selfridges in London to present her new children’s book “The Adventures of Abdi”. For the first time ever (in Europe) Madonna agreed to meet the first 250 customers in person and hand them a pre-signed copy of the book.

It was such a rare and unique opportunity to meet Mrs. Ritchie in person that many fans dropped everything and made their way to London as soon as they could.
