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.
"Eloise, Kay, and Hilary have been in my life always. And her pug puppy is in my heart. What memories!" -- Lena Horne (movie star) "Eloise is one of the more delightfully fiendish literary heroines of our time." -- Edward I. Koch (former NYC mayor!!!) "Thanks to Eloise, my daughter sought independence and mastery over her life. We loved reading this book, and we've never given it away." -- Susan Sarandon (rawther grande actress) "My first happy response to Eloise was entirely due to the brilliant, iconic images. That brazen, loose-limbed, deliciosly little girl monster is Hilary Knight at his best." -- Maurice Sendak (enormously famous artist) "Ooooooo....I just love Eloise! Thank you, Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight. You're the bestest!" -- Judy Blume (lovely author) "Eloise is a model for uppity women." -- Nina Totenberg (rawther important radio lady)
