Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

If your mother is even one-half worth her salt then sooner or later she's bound to make the acquaintance of a famous Hollywood Movie Mogul who will insist you simply must must must drop in for a visit." And that's how Eloise, Nanny, Weenie and Skipperdee land in glittering Hollywood in this rollicking if overlong caper penned by screenwriters Stem and Weiss, who competently mimic the distinctive voice created by Kay Thompson. Choosing the mode of transport favored by "many famous studio types," Eloise and her traveling companions board a train for Los Angeles, where the Mogul's chauffeur gives them a tour of the town's hot spots before delivering them to the pleasingly pink Hollywood Hills Hotel. Not surprisingly, the aspiring young actress manages to steal the show as she eventually (in the book's last third) gets her (brief) moment in the spotlight in a movie starring a "boy genius who solves crimes for the President." Enik's (Love and Kisses, Eloise) flourishes-filled, animated pen-and-ink illustrations feature pink and turquoise watercolor washes, and pay homage to Knight's Eloise art. A bustling, full-color gatefold reveals Eloise joyfully romping through a studio back lot. The text and pictures have a more contemporary feel than those in the original tales, but the creators have mostly kept the essentials intact, and that's rawther good news. All ages. (Oct.)

Format: Hardcover
The only vestige of the original charm of the Eloise character and story is the repeat use of "cawnt, cawnt, cawnt" or "rawther, rawther, rawther", I forget which and its not worth going back into this awfully written book. Illustrations are nice, but the story is incoherent, way too superficial and unreadable.

No Hilary knight? No thanks. This book was a sad reminder of the greed that permeates our society. Shame on the Kay Thompson estate.

My biggest problem with this book is that it's clearly an imitation of the earlier Eloise books by authors who are not Kay Thompson and an artist who is not Hilary Knight. While everyone involved does a good job of mimicking the original styles of Thompson and Knight, it doesn't quite ring true, and smacks of being an additional product brought out to try and capitalize on the continuing popularity of the originals. I'll stick with the "real" Eloise, thanks.

I hated this book. It's probably the worst children's book I've read to my children. It's not even really a story at all. It's pages of very small writing without punctuation and just pages of comments on Hollywood. There's really no theme, no characters, no storyline. We love the Eloise movies and other books but this book does not follow the pattern of the other books. We were very disappointed. My kids love almost all books (even the poors ones) and even they hated this book. My seven-year-old didn't even want to finish it. They said the movie is much better, however. But don't waste your money on this book.
