Totally didn't go where I expected, and did so astonishingly well. ( )

I do enjoy a good foundling/rags to riches story -- but the title really didn't go well with the book's story. ( )

I love this book! It makes me want to visit Vienna and Austria, even though I realize much has changed since this book was set in 1908. Still, I want to see the Lipizzaner horses perform in the Spanish Riding School and eat luscious Austrian pastries, walk in the Alps amid the flowers, and watch for birds. Annika and her family and friends are inspiring in their work ethic and kindness. This is my (at least) second reading of this novel and I love it even more. Includes a map of the German Empire and Austria-Hungary in 1908. ( )

Nostalgic, comfortable, with a tour of Vienna thrown in. I particularly appreciated the four pages devoted to the Christmas Eve carp: when one marries into a family with Eastern or Mittel European heritage, one comes to understand the importance of these things. In fact, the food in this book was generally glorious. There's always something that I end up side-eyeing in Ibbotson's 'real world' books: in this case it was the stereotyped pre-war Prussians. But I enjoyed 'The Star of Kazan' for its insistence on good food, and the importance of the family that makes you its own.

Star of Kazan by Eva Ibbotson is a children’s story about a young orphan who, abandoned at birth, goes through a series of adventures in order to find out where she truly belongs. I am a fan of this author and this book has become one of my favorites by her.

Set in Vienna, the city is an important part of the story and the author obviously knows and loves this city as it is brought to life through her descriptions. Annika, the abandoned baby, grows up in the care of a cook and housekeeper, but her family also includes the three professors that the servants work for, and indeed, many of the surrounding neighbours. Although a very happy child, she nevertheless dreams of her mother coming to find her. Her life takes a drastic turn when one day a regal looking woman comes knocking and claims Annika is her long lost daughter.

This is a timeless story that would appeal to the young at heart of all ages with it’s clever plot revolving around Annika’s heritage. Being a children’s story, all ends are neatly tied up by the end of the book but with it’s pre-WWI setting of Vienna and engaging characters, The Star of Kazan is a satisfying, feel good story for all ages.

Kirkus (Kirkus Reviews, September 15, 2004 (Vol. 72, No. 18))
Ibbotson, master of the "poor orphan makes good" tale, offers another eminently satisfying example, this one wrapped in a valentine to Vienna, the author's natal city. Raised by servants to be "a person who was interested in doing things, not having them," 11-or-so-year-old foundling Annika sees a dream come true when lovely, regal Edeltraut von Tannenberg appears at the door one day, joyously announcing that she's her real mother. Blinded by adoration, Annika barely notices how badly in need of repairs is her fortress-like new home, or how poorly she fits in with her spoiled and predatory new "family." Readers will, though, as piece by piece, the author reveals an elaborate, clever fraud involving faked documents, smoothly plausible lies, and a hoard of supposedly imitation jewelry that Annika has inherited from an elderly neighbor. Creating suspense by letting readers into the scheme long before Annika and her friends, Ibbotson also paints a vivid picture of pre-WWI Vienna, from its delectable pastries to the famed show horses of the Spanish Riding School. Along with this beguiling atmosphere and expertly developed plot, readers will long remember the admirable Annika and cheer her eventual, well-deserved, triumph. Illustrations not seen. 2004, Dutton, 336p, $16.99. Category: Fiction. Ages 10 to 13. Starred Review. © 2004 Kirkus Reviews/VNU eMedia, Inc. All rights reserved.
