Eloise at Christmastime

Author(s): Kay Thompson

Children Fiction

It's Christmas Eve in New York City, and Eloise tackles it with her usual gusto and irrepressible spirit. From dressing the tree to passing out parcels, never has a child displayed such enthusiasm for life. Hilary Knight's famous illustrations and Kay Thompson's rich language simply dance off the page. As Eloise says herself, 'Oooooooooooooooooooo! I absolutely love Christmas!'

Product Information

Kay Thompson was a singer, dancer, vocal arranger and coach to many MGM musicals in the 1940s. The Eloise character grew out of the voice of a precocious six-year-old she used to put on to amuse her friends. Collaborating with Hilary Knight on what was an immediate bestseller, Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight became literary sensations when the book was first published in 1955. More than 2 million copies have been sold to date and there are 3 more to be reissued my S&S!
