Eloise has been delighting readers for more than sixty years—though she’s still not a day over six. Celebrate with a beautifully illustrated hardcover edition of the original classic storybook with gobs of bonus material!Eloise is a very special little girl who lives at The Plaza Hotel in New York City. She may not be pretty yet, but she’s definitely already a real person. She loves learning about people who aren’t boring. Take Eloise home with you and she’ll introduce you to life at The Plaza. You’ll be glad you did!In the front of this book we have printed the original Eloise story and pictures, and in the back of it there are sketches and stories by Mr. Hilary Knight (the illustrator), photographs of Miss Kay Thompson when she was young and fabulous and rather like Eloise, and absolutely loads of information that you simply can’t can’t can’t get anywhere else. Here’s the thing: Whether you are just about to fall in love with Eloise or have already baked her a cake, you ought to have this book. (Charge it please and thank you very much.)
