The book is a fun and a great modern twist. The illustrations are lovely and vibrant. I can imagine that Ella's world will ignite the imagination of a child in the same way Eloise's did. The book is billed as being for hipsters of all ages, and I think you'll agree.
I have to admit when I first heard about this, I wasn't sure it would also be for children, but it is! It's child friendly with adult appeal, my favorite kind of children's book! :)
Definitely give it a look! Later this week, I'll have a review for you of HBO's documentary about the illustrator of the Eloise books, Hilary Knight.
Until then, enjoy!
*Please note I received a copy of this book to review.
