Eloise moves beyond her typical brattish behavior at The Plaza and into the stuffier environs of a private school, where she surprisingly manages to produce more mimic-worthy behavior. Although she bucks under the strict guidance of Mrs. Hedwig, she still models some important lessons about maintaining a bit of yourself even in the most rigid situations. And more importantly, she teaches some of the more indoctrinated kids how to stand up for themselves, and to bullies.

Fans of Eloise will still enjoy the antics of this rich kid who moves to the beat of her own very expensive, entitled drum, but parents will actually find a solid bit of wisdom here for school-aged kids in how to navigate this new, often scary terrain.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
