Eloise in Moscow is Thomspon's fourth book about the precocious young Plaza-resident, Eloise, and was written during the pinnacle of the Cold War. Traveling with her mother and their dog, Weenie, to the United States Embassy in Moscow, Eloise finds herself experiencing the Soviet Union with great concern for potential clandestine operations executed by the Soviet government. Thompson and Knight both visited the Soviet Union before developing the story for Eloise in Moscow, and drew upon their own experience there for the events of the book.
