Eleanor Estes (Author), Louis Slobodkin (Illustrator). Recently I rediscovered my old paperback copies of Eleanor Estes' Moffat books. I read them first way back in the 1960s in elementary school and really enjoyed them, and it's nice to pick them up again and reread them with adult eyes. The Moffat Museum was written many years after the first three Moffat books, and so inevitably there is a difference in tone here and there. But even so it's always a delight to read about the adventures of Sylvie, Joey, Jane, and especially Rufus Moffat.

We really enjoyed Louis Slobodkin's illustrations.

The Moffat family I think, is set during WWI and follows the day to day adventures of the children. This was probably a . for us but I think the book would be more interesting to a younger child. We really enjoyed Louis Slobodkin's illustrations.

Eleanor Estes’s The Hundred Dresses won a Newbery Honor in 1945 and has never been out of print since. At the heart of the story is Wanda Petronski. A children’s librarian for many years, she launched her writing career with the publication of The Moffats in 1941. Two of her outstanding books about the Moffats-Rufus M. and The Middle Moffat-were awarded Newbery Honors, as was her short novel The Hundred Dresses.

This enchanting book in the Moffat series by Eleanor Estes (with endearing illustrations by Louis Slobodkin) focuses on the humorous and heartwarming adventures of Jane in her beloved hometown. Highly recommended for children and adults. 2 people found this helpful.

I give The Moffats five stars, because I've read it many times over the decades, and I love it still. Children today, protected from words the publishers consider too hard, would profit from reading it: ignominiously, mien, geezer, e.g. And while learning new words, they would glimpse family life a century ago. A mother supports her four children and herself by dressmaking. Children are free to roam and discover the world.

(The poor formatting of the book, with pages missing, should be corrected. The note about Eleanor Estes at the end of the book contains a misspelling of Moffats, and other errors.)

Recently I rediscovered my old paperback copies of Eleanor Estes' Moffat books. I read them first way back in the 1960s in elementary school and really enjoyed them, and it's nice to pick them up again and reread them with adult eyes.

The Moffat Museum was written many years after the first three Moffat books, and so inevitably there is a difference in tone here and there. But even so it's always a delight to read about the adventures of Sylvie, Joey, Jane, and especially Rufus Moffat. They live with their widowed mother in a small house on Ashbellows Place in Cranbury, Connecticut. It's just after World War I, and money is tight. Their mother sews to earn money, and Sylvie and especially Joe work a variety of jobs to contribute their share, but this doesn't stop the fun. Jane and Rufus are once again the main characters. This time they've decided to set up a Moffat Museum, and they collect a variety of unusual and sometimes bizarre objects for it. Eventually many other people get involved, and the Museum becomes an unlikely success.

Since the Moffats are getting older there are some big changes in this book. Sylvie gets married and Joey goes away to school. Both Jane and Rufus are learning more about the world Like its predecessors The Moffat Museum is a series of independent though interconnected plotlines, told with gentle humor and simple, appealing, language.

This is an entertaining book about the Moffat family, Sylvia, Joey, Jane, and little Rufus. They live with their widowed mother in a big yellow house. Mama is a dressmaker, and supports her family by making dresses for fine ladies. The Moffat family is poor and have to be thrifty to survive. But the Moffat home is filled with love and laughter from the outrageous antics of the three lively youngest children. Rich in memorable characters both young and old, this book will keep you laughing, and make you fondly remember growing up in your own family with memories of your own crazy days as children. This book was written by a librarian from West Haven, Connecticut who bases the setting on the town of her youth, renamed Cranberry. You're going to love the Moffat family. So dive in, and happy reading.

My mother read this book when she was a kid. I read it when I was a kid. Now I'm passing it on to my niece. It's a lovely, warm look at childhood and the small moments that we remember from it. The book tells stories from the perspectives of each of the three younger Moffats (Joey, Janey, and Rufus) as well as stories that involve all three, giving it appeal to children of many ages. It's a neat introduction to some elements of history, as well, like the concept of quarantine or the days of horses and wagons. It's a wonderful children's book that continues to stand the test of time.

About a year of life in Cranbury is chronicled through the eyes of 9 to 10 year old Jane Moffat in The Moffats by Eleanor Estes. Each chapter focuses on a different event from having a for sale sign put up on the house where they live to Rufus (her 5 year old brother) ending up in a freight car to dance lessons and recital to moving when the house is finally sold. It’s a sweet book set in a long ago, slower time. I recommend it for all ages!

No Wizards, Wherewolves, Vampires need apply. I read this 55 years ago as a child and I could still remember the Authors name! I so enjoyed her books I read most of them that were published at the time AND WISHED FOR MORE. Why would a grown man revisit a childs book? I also read Moby Dick, Robinson Caruso, Treasure Island, David Copperfield. I liked to read and I like to revisit the books I love. Mrs Estes struck a cord with me, I connected with her charm and wit! And the vision she created in my head of a loving family stuck with me after all these years.

As with all the other Moffet books, this one is adorable. The Moffets are a WWI-era family living in a small town outside of Boston. Follow three of the four children around town on their daily adventures, as they take us back into a time of innocence and wonder that I wish all children today still had. I can't imagine any child not falling in love with the Moffats; I was first introduced to them in "Rufus M", when I was small, and ran to the library to check out the others in the series!

These are a great way to introduce a little history through fun stories; the antics and relationships are universal & timeless.
A charming story about a family and the adventures of the children. This book made me laugh. I look forward to sharing it with my son.
