Eloise (Paperback)Kay Thompson (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
One of the classic American picture books, Thompson and Knight’s freewheeling story of a self-possessed rich girl and her adventures in New York’s Plaza Hotel are a delightfully witty and nostalgic reminder of 1950’s glitz and glamour. Peopled with unforgettable characters and a riotous sense of sheer unbridled fun, Eloise is terrific fun whatever your age.
Eloise lives with her nanny at The Plaza Hotel in New York. The daughter of extremely rich parents, she is left daily to her own devices. She knows everything about The Plaza and everyone in it.
Henry James would want to study her. Queen Victoria would recognise her as an Equal. The New York Jets would want to have her on their side. Lewis Carroll would love her (once he got over the initial shock). Her antics are hilarious, her characterisation of those around her, perfect and whether you are about to fall in love with Eloise or you already adore her, you ought to have this book.
