There are times when you realise that defining something as a 'five-star' book and thus 'amazing' in the Goodreads schemata, is a process that could be interpreted in many ways. And thus, we come to 'Eloise in Moscow' which is most definitely amazing but amazing in a very distinct sort of sense of the word.

I've written about Eloise before, and I won't thematically repeat that here because, to be frank, Eloise in Moscow is quite different (and amazing) beast. It deserves it's own space.

So what i

I like all the Eloise books a lot, but this one is my favorite by far because somehow her rich brat excesses seem a lot less intolerable when she's hanging out with communists.

I'm completel new to Eloise, apparently having missed out entirely when I was a child. I only have the vaguest memory of the idea of Eloise, and I'd never seen any of the books until now. I checked Eloise in Moscow out to see if it'd be appropriate to read to my preschoole class for a Europe theme.

The book is adorable, but I am not at all convinced that children will understand what's going on it. The frenetic breathlessness of it is sweet, but also very hard to follow, and the little references

Found at an antique store. Hilary Knight's illustrations are truly charming. I may have to seek out some of the other Eloise books.

We've read several books featuring the rascally Eloise. Our girls like them and they are usually humorous tales, but this is a much more somber, paranoid story.

The illustrations in this book capture the essence of Moscow in winter, with the political and economic aspects of the times clearly defined within the story. It's startlingly still somewhat relevant today, although not perhaps to the levels describes in the story.

I have traveled fairly frequently to Russia with my job in the last two y

Eloise, as unique and vivacious as ever, pays a visit to Moscow.

this absolutely darling little sweetnik have another adventure..

and now she is in moscow!

gone all the black and white with a dash of pink, and instead hillary knight represent eloise and nanny and weenie in black and white and gray and yellow and orange.

hilarious adventure as eloise sets her journey through out moscow, with her taste of everything.. from food, circus, water, static phones and even spies!

Eloise visits Moscow and is up to her usual antics.

I found this Eloise book rather interesting as it is so clearly a product of its time. The Cold War and communism are clear themes in it. I thought it was interesting that the color scheme uses yellow, black and white instead of pink, black and white. The illustrations were also gorgeous as usual.
