Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Favorite characters help youngsters celebrate the season. The indomitable heroine first created by Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight says, "Charge it, please!" in Merry Christmas, Eloise! by Marc Cheshire, illus. by Carolyn Bracken. Flaps reveal the before-and-after scenes, as she causes a ruckus wherever she goes, be it toy store, department store or a visit to Santa. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Thompson's Eloise, accompanied by Nanny and her dog, Weenie, prepares for Christmas in predictable fashion. Wearing her new holiday clothes, she "skibbles" through department stores, visits Santa, joins a group of carolers, and decorates her suite. Lift-the-flap pages add some interest, but this spin-off lacks the verve and charm of the original stories about this irrepressible child.-Virginia Walter, University of California, Los Angeles Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

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.
