Where can i find audio or video of the book Madeleine by Ludwig Bemelmans in french?

It's my 9 year old niece's birthday tomorrow. She's recently expressed interest in all things French, especially macarons and Paris. I thought a fun gift for her would be the children's book Madeleine in french combined with a way for her to read along with an audio recording and maybe learn some French words. I found the book in french (yay!), but I am stumped as to where to find audio. I expected (incorrectly!) that there would be several youtube videos of someone reading the french version aloud like there is for the english version. Does anyone know where i could find audio or video of the french text for her to read along to?

Book title is "Madeline" with no extra 'e', if that helps you search.

I searched YouTube for 'Madeline en francais' and found this charming video of a child reading it in French.

To my knowledge, the book was originally written in English, despite being set in Paris, but I could be wrong about that.
