Here is everything you need to know about Eloise (the enormously famous little girl who lives at the Plaza Hotel) because in the front of this book we have printed the original Eloise story and pictures and in the back of it there are sketches that nobody has seen before by Mr. Hilary Knight (the Artist) and photographs of Miss Kay Thompson when she was young and fabulous rawther like Eloise and absolutely loads of information that you simply cawn't cawn't cawn't get anywhere else. Here's the thing: whether you are just about to fall in love with Eloise or you already adore her you ought to have this book. (Charge it please and thank you very much.)

About the Author

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 three more Eloise books, Eloise in Paris, Eloise at Christmastime, and Eloise in Moscow, all of which are now to be reissued by SimonandSchuster.
