"I am Eloise. I am six. I am a city child. I live at the Plaza", and so we are introduced to Kay Thompson's well loved story of Eloise, a garrulous incorrigible little girl living in New York City's most famous hotel. Cheeky and always funny this is a delightful read for both the children listening and the adults reading to them. Rumoured to be based on Kay Thompson's goddaughter Liza Minnelli, who lived for awhile in The Plaza with her famous mother Judy Garland.

This gorgeous hardback book is 32 pages long and is of course available here at The Princess & The Pea.
