Riassunto: Here is everything you need to know about Eloise (the enormously famous little girl who lives at the Plaza Hotel) because in the front of this book we have printed the original "Eloise" story & pictures and in the back of it there are sketches that nobody has seen before by Mr. Hilary Knight (the Artist) and photographs of Miss Kay Thompson when she was young and fabulous "rawther" like Eloise and absolutely loads of information that you simply cawn't cawn't cawn't get anywhere else. Here's the thing: whether you are just about to fall in love with Eloise or you already adore her you ought to have this book. (Charge it please and thank you very much.)
Recensione: 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 splendor of the original 65-page Eloise story, this special edition includes an 18-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. (Click to see a sample spread. Copyright 1955, renewed 1983 by Kay Thompson.
