Hello Room Sevice this is me ELOISE we're going to Paris France goodbye And so, our favourite enfant terrible (sporting her foreign identification travel tag) says au revoir to the Plaza and embarks with Nanny and Weenie on a Parisian adventure which is rawther extraordinaire. While whizzing through the streets, sights, and shops of Paris, Eloise comes to a few important conclusions about life avec les francais. Mainly, that 'you cawn't cawn't cawn't get a good cup of tea... so you have to have champagne with a peach in it' and that 'French bread makes very good skis'. Which pretty much sums it up. She also builds up an impressive collection of champagne corks.
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!
