From the Publisher
"Eloise is one of the more delightfully fiendish literary heroines of our time."
Edward I. Koch (former NYC mayor!!!)
"Eloise is a model for uppity women."
Nina Totenberg (rawther important radio lady)
"Thanks to Eloise, my daughter sought independence and mastery over her life. We loved reading this book, and we've never given it away."
Susan Sarandon (rawther grande actress)
"Ooooooo....I just love Eloise! Thank you, Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight. You're the bestest!"
Judy Blume (lovely author)
"My first happy response to Eloise was entirely due to the brilliant, iconic images. That brazen, loose-limbed, deliciosly little girl monster is Hilary Knight at his best."
Maurice Sendak (enormously famous artist)
"Eloise, Kay, and Hilary have been in my life always. And her pug puppy is in my heart. What memories!"
Lena Horne (movie star)

Meet Eloise, the irrepressible six-year-old who lives with her British nanny, her dog Weenie, and her turtle Skipperdee in New York City's Plaza Hotel. Eloise makes a nuisance of herself -- riding elevators, dragging sticks along the walls as she roller-skates down the corridors, and "helping" the staff prepare rooms for official functions. Told from Eloise's perspective, readers will recognize the naughty impulses they always wanted to satisfy. Room service anyone?

Get dizzy and fall down
Make a terrible face
And here's the thing of it
Most of the time I'm on the telephone
