Eloise In Paris

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 (1909–1998) was a singer, dancer, vocal arranger, and coach of many MGM musicals in the 1940s. The Eloise character grew out of the voice of a precocious six-year-old that Miss Thompson put on to amuse her friends. Collaborating with Hilary Knight on what was an immediate bestseller, Kay Thompson became a literary sensation when Eloise was published in 1955. The book has sold more than two million copies to date. Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight created four more Eloise books, Eloise in Paris, Eloise at Christmas, Eloise in Moscow, and Eloise Takes a Bawth.
