Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Eloise, that privileged six-year old who lives at the Plaza with her Nanny, is going to go ice skating. Those familiar with New York will enjoy seeing her stroll down the streets with the holiday decorations and end up at the skating rink at Rockefeller Center. Eloise, always the fashion maven, has skates that match her bow and a lovely fur jacket to keep her warm; however, it turns out that she is a real terror on skates, narrowly missing other skaters and performing a bit of a ballet on ice. She tries a jump and it is her good fortune to be caught by a policeman rather than making a hard landing on the ice. Nanny has had enough and suggests that it is time for hot chocolate. The irrepressible Eloise has found a way to make the boring days of winter awfully fun. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

Meet the Author

Kay Thompson

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.

    Eloise is a classic but be aware....

    The Eloise books are just so much fun, but she really is somewhat of a brat in the nicest sense of the word, some say she's precocious in the not so nice sense of the word, so when reading I sometimes have to say well that wasn't very nice or do you think she should have done that? Eloise is perfect for a 5+ year old that really understands right from wrong in the fundamental sense.
