I had high hopes for this book, which definitely weren't met. Eloise is the story of a spoiled girl who lives in a New York hotel with a nanny (her mother is absent without any explanation) and whose obnoxious exploits go completely unchecked. Her brattiness is irritating and her frequent, casual use of "my Lord" and "oh my Lord" is offensive. I would never read these to my daughter or want her to read them herself. We'll stick with Madeline.
