She is interested in people when they are not boring.
If you take her home with you, you will always be glad you did.
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. Hilary Knight, son of artist-writers Clayton Knight and Katharine Sturges, was educated at the Art Students League, where he studied with Reginald Marsh. Besides the Eloise books, Hilary Knight has illustrated more than fifty books for children, six of which he wrote himself.
He lives and works in New York City, not far from The Plaza Hotel.
-- Edward I. Koch (former NYC mayor!!!)
"Eloise is a model for uppity women."
-- Nina Totenberg (rawther important radio lady)
"Thanks to Eloise, my daughter sought independence and mastery over her life. We loved reading this book, and we've never given it away."
-- Susan Sarandon (rawther grande actress)
"Ooooooo....I just love Eloise! Thank you, Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight. You're the bestest!"
-- Judy Blume (lovely author)
"My first happy response to Eloise was entirely due to the brilliant, iconic images. That brazen, loose-limbed, deliciosly little girl monster is Hilary Knight at his best."
-- Maurice Sendak (enormously famous artist)
"Eloise, Kay, and Hilary have been in my life always. And her pug puppy is in my heart. What memories!"
-- Lena Horne (movie star)
