Frankly, one can never have too much Eloise. For all those who love love love the irrepressible 6-year-old resident of New York City's haughty Plaza Hotel, and shining star of Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight's classic Eloise, the ultimate joy is to see four favorite titles collected in one enormous volume: Eloise: The Ultimate Edition. Sit back and watch as our heroine braids Skipperdee the turtle's ears, brushes her teeth with pear lemonade in Moscow, absolutely goes wild in Paris, and jingles around her lobby at Christmastime, tying tassels on the thermostat. This edition, with a lovely new dust jacket by Hilary Knight, includes our absolutely darling little sweetnik in Eloise in Moscow, the fantastique Eloise in Paris, the rawther festive Eloise at Christmastime, and the splendid scrapbook of memorabilia, photos, and drawings, The Absolutely Essential Eloise. It's all absolutely essential, if you ask us. (All ages) --Emilie CoulterFrom the Publisher:
