Editorial Reviews

About the Author

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.

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.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Z Hayes HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 21, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My daughter read through all the Eloise Level 1 series of readers a month ago, and we revisited them recently because she told me she missed stories about Eloise! Well, the actual collection of Eloise stories (not the early readers) are still beyond my five-and-a-half year old's reading ability, but these make for great entertainment and revision!

In "Eloise's Pirate Adventure", Eloise plays make-believe as a pirate and has lots of fun doing so. The story captures Eloise's fun-loving nature and the illustrations enhance the text. Typical of level one readers, this book has slightly more challenging vocabulary, e.g. "wiggle", "patch", "treasure", etc. and longer sentence structure. Young children who love Eloise and her adventures will adore this series of early readers.

My great-granddaughter wasn't going to be able to wear her special pirate costume to school because all costumes had to be from a storybook. So we took to Amazon and found this delightful storybook. She loved Eloise and the story! How perfect. And it came so quickly she was able to have it in her pretty little hand for class. Eloise saved the day!

Doesn't really capture Eloise's personality like the originals, and doesn't cover the back story of why Eloise is living at the Plaza Hotel, but I suppose we shouldn't be encouraging small children to put pet turtles down the mail slot. Good illustrations, held the attention of my 3 year-old grandson.

Adorable. My 3 year old loves it. Eloise is searching for the treasure in the Plaza Hotel. Will she find it?
