Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In a similar vein, the six-year-old espouses her favorite things in Eloise's What I Absolutely Love Love Love, including dress-up, room service and, of course, "Nanny/ Emily/ Weenie and Skipperdee/ New York/ Paris/ Moscow/ and The Plaza Hotel." Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Eloise is popular so illustrations and stories are repackaged for a variety of occasions. This is called "An Eloise Weenie Book" probably because it is so short and in a small format. Eloise announces that she is six and describes what she loves. It ranges from ballet, speaking French, dressing up and room service. Having spent some time with a young nephew, I know that kids really do love room service, but Eloise as usual takes things over the top. Her favorite food is planked medallions of beef, her favorite place to live is the Plaza Hotel and she loves clothes by Dior. Not your average kid, but that is what makes her so engaging—it is a life that kids will never experience. 2005, Simon & Schuster, Ages 4 to 7.

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.
