About 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.

Eloise is my new hero. And 'sklathe' is my new favorite word! You can't help but get silly and sound British when you read this aloud. My 3 y/o daughter loves to say 'Bawth' and 'Nawny' (For Nanny)and order things on the dub-dub-double (playfully). The thing that is so magical about these books is the way the author captures the wild imagination of children. Especially those who get lots of unstructured play. I use these books to remind myself of what it's like to let your imagination run free! It's such a joy to read a book without a message such as 'liking yourself' (Eloise would be baffled by this QUESTION of self-love!)Eloise is just too busy admiring herself in the mirror, spying on those around her, loving everybody and elevating every mundane experience (e.g. taking a bawth)into a great adventure! This is pure entertainment. Here's what you do: buy the book!

Eloise Takes a Bawth, is a colorful story of the whimsical little girl who lives in the Plaza Hotel. Written by Kay Thompson, this is a humorous story about Eloise and her adventures during bath time. The bath time adventures continues as Eloise accidentally has too much fun during bath time and begins to flood the Plaza. Bath time begins to take you through the grand, architectural rooms of the Plaza and the staff who works there.

Eloise is so cute. I love this story. I would recommend it for older children, like 6 and up, because it is a bit long, but is the most adorable story. It makes me want to speak in a British accent all day.
