For the first time ever, Eloise and her friends are in a board book story adapted from the original classic. How Marvelous!
Eloise is a very special—and very precocious—six-year-old girl who lives at The Plaza Hotel in New York City. She may not be pretty yet, but she’s definitely already a real Person. Join Eloise and experience her fabulous life in the famous Plaza Hotel. You’ll be glad you did!
Kay Thompson (1909–1998) was a singer, dancer, vocal arranger, and coach of many MGM musicals in the 1940s. The Eloise character grew out of the voice of a precocious six-year-old that Miss Thompson put on to amuse her friends. Collaborating with Hilary Knight on what was an immediate bestseller, Kay Thompson became a literary sensation when Eloise was published in 1955. The book has sold more than two million copies to date. Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight created four more Eloise books, Eloise in Paris, Eloise at Christmas, Eloise in Moscow, and Eloise Takes a Bawth.
