The BEST read aloud book for school aged kids ever!! And I have read many, many books to my family over the years. This is the one book that my husband forbade me from reading when he wasn't in the room. He hated to miss even one page of the story. The only book I love to read aloud nearly as much (and it is in second place) is The Wolves of Willoughby Chase. Eva's sly humor and smart heroines make her one of my favorite authors.

The audio book was great, the narrator used voices that allowed the listener to easily differentiate each character and what they were feeling. The story was wonderful with fabulous descriptions of the locations and the food. I also liked the way the plot that built up carefully as the book progressed with a number of cliff hangers and twists. This book is a little darker than some of her other works but it is an excellent novel that I would unhesitatingly recommend

I am reading this aloud to my daughter and son, who at ages 10 and 11 are quite capable readers themselves; and, we are all enjoying it immensely. Eva Ibbotson is a wonderful writer and storyteller—and I fill the children in on the history of the period to increase their understanding (we live in Europe so it is a little easier for them to grasp perhaps than if they were growing up in the US).

I like Ibbotsen.

This was a transporting book. I really felt i was experiencing life in the beautiful city of Vienna before the war. All of Ms Ibbotson's books are fresh, fun and very cleverly written. The main character was lovely, very perfect yet still human. I hope to read all of her books eventually.

Eva Ibbotson writes about really interesting time periods and cultures. I wish I could get my students to read her novels. They would learn a lot of history.

Great book. One of my favorites of this author's.

I worked as a school librarian for 8 years. During that time, I screened hundreds of childrens books, before purchasing them and/or reading them aloud to the students.
The Star of Kazan received rave reviews at a wonderful conference I attended, which was presented by a librarian who had served on the Newberry committee. I bought the book for my school library, read it and loved it, and happily recommended it to scores of students, who enjoyed it as well.
My family recently moved abroad, and my children have been clamoring for reading material. I eagerly purchased the Star of Kazan for my 10 year old daughter. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did. In fact, I am anxious to reread it myself, and share it with her!
