Eloise

Meet Eloise, the precocious darling of the Plaza Hotel!

Eloise is a little girl who lives at The Plaza Hotel in New York. She is not yet pretty but she is already a Person.
Henry James would want to study her.
Queen Victoria would recognize 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).
She knows everything about The Plaza. She is interested in people when they are not boring.
She has Inner Resources.
If you take her home with you, you will always be glad you did.

    This summer, the Wall Street Journal asked me to pick five books I admired that were somehow reminiscent of A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW. To that en...

  • Lisa Vegan

    Charming and witty book about a bright, loquacious, mischievous, imaginative 6 year old girl who lives at the Plaza Hotel in New York. First in the Eloise series and a good one to read first. Really f...

    People need to calm down with the reviews of this book. Okay, so this story about a six year old isn't the most PC book on the library shelf. There is a mention of an adult having a drink and enjoying...

    This book, oh this gloriously wicked and funny book, is one of my greatest pleasures. Kay Thompson was godmother to Liza (Lizaaa!) Minelli and wrote the Eloise series inspired by both the antics of Li...

    I do not like Eloise. I hesitate to say this about a young child, even a fictional one. But I found this little girl and her life at the Plaza hotel mostly depressing . . . a poor little rich girl, me...
