ELOISE

Author: Kay Thompson; illustrator: Hilary Knight
Kay Thompson (1909-1998) was a singer, dancer, vocal arranger, and coach of many MGM musicals in the 1940s; Knight has illustrated over fifty books, nine of which he also wrote. Eloise grew out of the voice of a precocious six-year-old that Thompson put on to amuse her friends. Following the success of Eloise, the two collaborated in creating additional Eloise books including Eloise in Paris, and Eloise in Moscow.  Thompson's estate allows for the publication of additional books in the Eloise style, the first of which is Eloise in Hollywood.
Eloise Eloise in Paris Eloise in Moscow Eloise in Hollywood
First published in 1955
The irrepressible, six-year-old Eloise turns things upside down at New York City's Plaza Hotel, where she lives. Here readers get introduced to Nanny, Eloise's governess and her dog, Weenie and her turtle, Skipperdee. They also learn how Eloise spends her day --- typically getting into all sorts of mischief at the hotel.
First published in 1957
Eloise's nanny is referred to here as Nahnee. Enjoy their adventure as they explore all the sites of Paris. A quick note --- the authors knew many celebrities mentioned in the book --- Richard Avedon takes Eloise's passport photograph; Christian Dior prods her tummy, while his young assistant, Yves Saint Laurent, looks on; Lena Horne sits at an outdoor café.
First published in 1959
Think of Moscow in the 1950s when there was a Cold War going on. Then picture Eloise, the precocious 6-year-old heading there with her nanny. The usual pink, black, and white colors that are signature Eloise are absent here. Instead the drawings are maize/goldenrod, and even oranges and greens.

Published in 2006
based on the art of Hilary Knight
written by J. David Stem and David N. Weiss
illustrated by Ted Enik

The aspiring young actress --- who probably would be a huge admirer of film star Shirley Temple --- takes readers behind the scenes of a movie production as she prepares to make her own big screen debut. We know that Eloise is ready for Hollywood, but is Hollywood ready for Eloise?
