Eloise by Kay Thompson

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.

About the Author

Kay Thompson

Kay Thompson is slender, sleek and unbelievably versatile. She is a dancer, a singer, a pianist, a composer, a choreographer, and now an author. As many thousands of Americans know, she created a night-club act that can only be described as indescribable. The critic from Variety tried to pin it down more concisely, "Her act is paced like a North Atlantic gale," he began bravely, but then threw in the sponge. "Miss Thompson is more than an act," he said finally. "She's an experience."
