Eloise Takes a Bawth by Kay ThompsonWhile Nanny dear unsuspectingly watches her soap opera, and Mr Salomone, the Plaza's manager, prepares for the charity event of the year, a Masked Venetian Ball, Eloise takes a bawth. She bolts the bathroom door with a backbrush and turns on every faucet and tap in sight and begins her willful water mischief in a glamorous fantasy bath world complete with Skipperdee and Weenie to boot. SLAWSH! The Plaza has flooded! The Grand Ball Room is in pandemonium! Who? Who? Who is the culprit? Mr Salomone and the Plaza head engineer follow the flow of water and discover that the trouble began with a certain precocious little girl up on the very top floor - none other than our very own favourite Eloise, who of course, as only she can, manages to turn the catastrophe into a fantastic sensation and be crowned Little mermaid of the Masked Venntian Ball. Belissimo!
's accent!). We join her on an imaginative adventure as one minute she is racing in a speedboat, then she is a pirate and the next minute she is Little Miss Mermaid, all the while oblivious to the catastrophe unfolding downstairs. Thompson captures the essence of being six wonderfully, and needless to say all turns out well for Eloise as the ensuing flood merely adds to the spectacle of the Venetian Masked Ball. The comical illustrations, black and white with splashes of colour, work very well with a fast-paced text which much like Eloise herself hardly pauses for breath. The result is an engaging picture book which will be enjoyed by Eloise fans young and old. Ages 4-6 (Kirkus UK)'
