Product description

Amazon Review

Maurice Sendak calls Eloise a "brazen, loose-limbed little monster". Pulitzer Prize winner Anna Quindlen finds her pathetic and lonely. Eloise gave Vanity Fair writer Marie Brenner "permission to rebel". Anyone who has been introduced to the eccentric 6-year-old who spends her days at large in New York's Plaza Hotel pouring water down the mail chute and managing her self-imposed responsibilities is fascinated, fascinated, fascinated. She is the only girl we know who feeds her turtle raisins and braids his ears, wears Kleenex boxes on her head (they make very good hats) and gets away with everything. Even if you have seven copies of the original Eloise, you may want to add The Absolutely Essential Eloise to your collection. In addition to the full splendour of Eloise, this special edition includes a 16-page scrapbook, written by Marie Brenner, with "photographs of Miss Kay Thompson when she was young and fabulous and rawther like Eloise" and never-before-seen photographs, memorabilia and sketches and stories from illustrator Hilary Knight. Anyone who adores Eloise and is intrigued by her talented creators should have this book within easy reach. (Ages 5 to 105) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Long may Eloise "skibble" through life and remind us all how a little imagination can get us through the daily grind with a very big smile.

-- Edward I. Koch (former NYC mayor!!!)

-- Susan Sarandon (rawther grande actress)
