It is beyond me how anyone could have given this book any rating below 4 or 5 stars. Reading through some of the low rated comments I just can't help but feel that the people just didn't 'get' Eloise.
Eloise is a little girl living in a very adult world, and still she finds ways to be a child and to have a childhood.
No, she's not a role model for children, but I think they can understand that. My own children understood that they could never do the things that Eloise does, but they sure had fun thinking about what might happen if they did.
The last thing I want to say is that you have to remember these books were written in the late 1950s. After decades of politically correct, sickly sweet children's books it's easy to forget that there was a time when people wrote books for children that did not insult their intelligence.
Read Eloise... read Eloise in Paris... read all of them. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Format: Hardcover
The last time I was in NYC I walked past The Plaza Hotel and noticed a plaque proclaiming it a "literary landmark" as the home of Eloise. Therefore I had to read the book. What a disappointment!
Eloise could be the poster child for ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). She has no contact with other children and does not attend school. She spends no time with her parents and is being razed by servents. We never once see her playing out side.
Huck Finn rebelled agents the absurdity of adult society and cruelty in general. Eloise embraces them! She lives on the top floor of The Plaze and her mother knows the owner. This gives her licensee to lord it over all around her. She calls room service and orders "two rasins and one strawberry leaf" and says "charge it." A child who has discovered she has the power to make adults look and act silly. Her tutor is a student who attends Andover and she insults and torments him because she considers him a bore. She knows she can get away with it because "My mother knows the dean!" This is a kid who really knows how things "work"!
But Eloise's privilage is her undoing. She has freedom most children can only dream about but her use of it is almost always self-distructive. She transcends normal childhood self-centeredness to become a bully.
Eloise always gets her way and is waited on hand and foot. I think that must be what appeals to the reader. It is not Eloise so much as her life style they find attractive.

Eloise is so funny,
she is a free spirt, and very accurate. She's here, She's there, She's everywhere. Recently, they made Eloise at the Plaza,(Rated 5 stars) And she's great.
Though I'm 10, and the age group is 6 and over, I LOVE IT. I have that and Eloise in Paris, and Eloise in Moscow (First Prinitng)

If you read this, you'll always be glad you did...

I have always loved children's books and at seventeen, I am still quite a child myself. One of my dearest friends, whose name is Eloise and I swap children's books and so she leant me the Absolutely Essential Eloise. I do not care what others say about her being a 'brat' or whatnot, I love this book and the others! Eloise is exactly how anyone would want to live, having everything and doing anything. I would highgly recommend it to any adult who wants to capture their 'inner child' again. :D I love Weenie too because I love pug dogs.
My mother knows Coco Chanel.

Rationale of Eloise
Eloise
By: Kay Thompson
Illustrated By: Hilary Knight
I read Eloise by Kay Thompson, illustrated by Hilary Knight. Eloise is a story for anyone who has lost their inner child in them and can't find it. Search no longer, Eloise is the perfect book for any age between young children and "precocious grown ups." I awarded Eloise four out of five stars because it was funny, impertinent, but also bratty.
As the story goes, Eloise is a six year-old girl living in The Plaza Hotel located in an urban city, and is very proud of it. Eloise takes advantage that The Plaza Hotel is an expensive, cushy, and is in an in an adult atmosphere. Most people staying at the Plaza are older men and woman with the exception of course, Miss Eloise. In the way she acts, Eloise is six going on seventeen, but as for true maturity, she is still a six year-old girl at heart. Eloise is a nuisance, spoiled, and just a bray in general. She lives on the top floor of the Plaza. The quickest way to get there is by taking the elevator. But of course, Eloise can't simply ride the elevator like a well-mannered, civilized person. Oh no. Miss Eloise rides the elevator as if it were an attraction at Disneyland that you ride over, and over, and over. Some other things that Eloise does are ordering strange meals from room service (a single raisin, for example) and bosses around Nanny, her nurse.
Eloise was funny because it brought out the kid in me. It reminded me of the familiar desire to want to act three times your age, the desire to want to be an independent person, and the wish of having all the toys in the whole, wide world. You could hear the voice of a young girl shining through the writing. Ms.
