eloise.jpgMom Jessie loves the classic Eloise, written by Kay Thompson and illustrated by Hilary Knight, and she's in good company. This memorable character, who first saw publication in 1955, has captured the hearts of millions, adults and kids alike.

"My favorite book is Eloise, because of the whimsy and she's naughty," Jessie says.

What naughty book character has stuck with you? And are there any books where you've preferred the crafty villain to the hero?

What a good question! You have to love that bad-boy, Max and his wolf suit, and who wouldn't want to draw all of the walls like little Harold with his Purple Crayon. There are also all those animal trouble-makers—Pigeon and Skippy John Jones.

Of course, for me, the ultimate lovable villain is Artemis Fowl. I know, not a picture book, but still the most enjoyable evil genius ever written.
