Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
The inimitable Eloise twirls and runs through the Plaza Hotel on Christmas Eve bringing her idea of Christmas decorating and caroling to everyone she meets. "I'm rawther fond of caroling/ Fa la on every floor…" She delivers gifts to the staff, her dog and turtle, and to her beloved Nanny. Her "mother called long distance from the Mediterranean," making Eloise a little wistful. However, her dear Nanny knows just the thing to say. This small book is adapted from Eloise at Christmastime, first published in 1958. Knight's pen & ink drawings of this precocious little girl and her antics are still perfectly suited to the droll text. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo

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.
