Item description for The Moffats by Eleanor Estes...

Newbery medalistEleanor Estes continues to charm new generations of fans with her gentlestory of a family's struggles in the early part of the twentieth century.

Outline Review
Who else but a member of the Moffat family could, during kindergarten recess, accidentally hitch a ride out of town on a boxcar? Or wind up trapped in the breadbox outside the delicatessen store? Or kindly offer to escort the Salvation Army man to his destination--only to accidentally bump him out of his own horse-drawn wagon? The Moffats is a paradigm of old-fashioned family fun. Four children and a hard-working widowed mother live together on New Dollar Street in the village of Cranbury. Their seemingly quiet lives are studded with almost daily unexpected adventures, with droll results.

This charming book has been making readers smile for over half a century. It reflects a gentler era, when the jolly chief of police had time to sit on the curb to hear a little girl's "crimes" and a little boy's escapade on a train was not cause for media panic, just a simple redirecting by the agreeable engineer. Eleanor Estes, author of the Newbery Honor book The Hundred Dresses, and Caldecott medalist Louis Slobodkin (Many Moons) make a lovely team in this story of benign humor and sweet times. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

Reviews - What do customers think about The Moffats?

The moffats  Apr 17, 2008
the moffats is a funny book that although this sounds cheesy is a classic for all ages. All the characters are strange and wonderful and funny. Mostly though the story follows Jaynie moffat (who also has a book of her own which is even better than this one.) All the stories though are great. I highly reccomend this book to ANYONE.
A childhood favorite that my children enjoy too!!!  Dec 30, 2007
What a treat when a childhood favorite that my children really enjoy!!!!!
Buy the real 1941 hardcover with the lovely illustrations that really make the book so good!!!!!
Love this!  Oct 7, 2007
This is not only entertaining and charming, but is filled with vivid details of life in the days without electricity, when cars were a rarity and kids could buy an ice cream cone for a nickel.
Great book...  Oct 28, 2006
I'm 14 and I still love this book. Eleanor Estes is a fantastic writer and this is one of my favourites. I highly reccomend this book for ANY age-it has something for everyone.
Wow! Amazing book!  Apr 8, 2005
Wow! I loved this book! Between Jane being in a bread box, to Rufus getting on the freight train car. I think that everybody will like this book if they read it. When I started this book, it was like I couldn't put it down. I would read it like 2 hours a day, and I only was required to read 30 minutes for school! I loved it! Now I'm starting to read all the sequels to Eleanor Estes' fantastic books. I'm telling you, READ THIS BOOK!
