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.
Here she is at Christmastime Complete with tinsel and holly Singing fa la la la lolly And over the roar of the jingle bells.
Here's the thing of it: Paris has just been discovered by Eloise the little girl from the Plaza.
With the freezing wind blowing and the snow flying, Eloise, Nanny, and Weenie arrive in Moscow.
"Eloise is one of the more delightfully fiendish literary heroines of our time." -- Edward I. Koch (former NYC mayor!!!)
ELOISE has been celebrated at the PLAZA, in PARIS, at CHRISTMASTIME, in MOSCOW. Now ELOISE takes a plunge in the BAWTH.

Frankly, one can never have too much Eloise, the ultimate joy is to see four favorite titles collected in one enormous volume.
By 1959, there were four published and one unpublished "Eloise" books. Only the first book, Eloise: a book for precocious grown ups had remained in print. You can pick up a copy of the original issues of the books from a bookstore specializing in antiquarian books or on the internet via Biblio or ABEBooks or the online auctions at Ebay. However, you must be willing to pay a hefty price. A first edition of Eloise at Christmastime can go for as much as $500.00. With the assent of Kay Thompson's estate, in May 1999, Simon & Schuster published a new edition of the original, The Essential Eloise, the classic Eloise story with a 16-page Eloise scrapbook, by Vanity Fair writer Marie Brenner and illustrated with never-before-seen photographs, memorabilia and sketches from the collection of Hilary Knight. S&S also reissued Eloise in Paris in May 1999. These books were followed by Eloise at Christmastime in the fall 1999 and Eloise in Moscow in spring 2000 and Eloise's Guide to Life in June of the same year. In 2002, Eloise Takes a Bawth, the first new Eloise book in 40 years was finally published.
