Eloise in Moscow - Kay Thompson, Hilary Knight (illustrator) 1959 - Simon and Schuster, New York - First Edition ‘Anyone who fears that the whole human race has been turned out on the same assembly line had better make the acquaintance of Eloise. She is the raw material of genius.’ – New York Herald Tribune Book Review.

Despite Nanny’s pleading, nothing can deter Eloise from her trip to Moscow! Armed with her natural charm and somewhat questionable diplomacy skills, she’s determined to put on her Ushanka, pack up her sled, and get to the Aragvi in time for tea.

An interesting glimpse into a Cold War 1959 view of Soviet Russia, with Hilary Knights illustrations, including stunning fold-out panorama of ‘Ancient Kremlin Citadel’, adding colour and humour, albeit with slightly less pink than Eloise would have wished for...
