1955 - Simon and Schuster, New York - First Edition
‘Anyone who fears that the whole human race has been turned out on the same assembly line had better make the acquaintance of Eloise. She is the raw material of genius.’ – New York Herald Tribune Book Review.

‘I am Eloise. I am six. I live at the Plaza hotel.’

With those immortal words, we are introduced to the irreverent and hilarious young occupant of the Plaza, the quirky and ever-lovable Eloise, (rumoured to have been modeled on Kay Thompson’s young goddaughter, Liza Minnelli)...

Accompanied by her English Nanny, loyal pug, and pet turtle, Eloise enjoys spending her days riding the elevator, adding her crayon art to the walls, and avoiding homework at all costs. Selling over 150’000 copies within the first two years of its publication, Knight’s protagonist went on to become one of the most influential and iconic characters of children’s literature, brought to life by Hilary Knight’s brilliant illustrations, combining child-like wonder with warmth and comedy.
