Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Oliver
This level 1 "Ready to Read" early reader brings us Kay Thompson's Eloise in a younger reader format. Eloise wakes one morning and discovers it is snowing. Over the protests of her nanny, who wants her to eat breakfast, Eloise heads out to make a snowman in Central Park. Upon completion, Eloise realizes, "Something is missing." She has her driver return for a conventional carrot nose, but something is still not right. She continues to add to her snowman, including a coat, hat and scarf and eventually has a house built for him. When she's finally satisfied, she heads back to the Plaza for breakfast. This is an easily accessible incarnation of Eloise that's sure to please old fans and win a few new ones. The story is appealing to any child and the illustrations remain true to Hilary Knight's originals. This book and other Eloise easy readers are an excellent addition to collections for emerging readers.

Meet 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 four more Eloise books, Eloise in Paris, Eloise at Christmas, Eloise in Moscow, and Eloise Takes a Bawth.

Hilary Knight, son of artist-writers Clayton Knight and Katharine Sturges, was educated at the Art Students League, where he studied with Reginald Marsh. Besides the Eloise books, Hilary Knight has illustrated more than fifty books for children, six of which he wrote himself. He lives and works in New York City, not far from The Plaza Hotel.
