Epub × Eloise At Christmastime ñ Kay Thompson Yes Here she is at Christmastime Complete with tinsel and holly Singing fa la la la lolly And over the roar of the jingle bells You Christmas comes to the Plaza Hotel and that pint sized terror Eloise is in the thick of things in this third picture book adventure bringing her own inimitable style to the seasonal celebration Complete with tinsel and holly Singing fa la la la lolly Eloise really gets into the swing of things here finding uniue gifts for all of the Plaza staff gracing many of the in house parties with her presence and making sure that seasonal greetings written in red on the hallway walls can be seen by all When it comes to being jolly Eloise is in top formOriginally published in 1958 out of print for many years and then reprinted in 1999 with new cover art by Hilary Knight Eloise at Christmastime differs from its two predecessors both in length it has considerably less text than either Eloise or Eloise in Paris and in form Told in rhyming verse it reads fairly well and while the heroine is no appealing to me than in Eloise in Paris somehow what amused me in the first book palled in the second I found this one fairly engaging Perhaps given the determined efforts at precocious cleverness comparative brevity helps the experience along? In any case Eloise fans will enjoy this Christmas tale I think and it is to them I would recommend it

Kay Thompson ñ Eloise At Christmastime Doc

Eloise At ChristmastimeO when it's everly Christmastime And you're under your Christmas trees Simply tinkle a bell and have a trinkle And remember Me Eloi In all of the Eloise books the precocious 6 year old's mother is not with her young daughter Eloise is left in the care of Nanny Besides Nanny her companions are mostly her beloved pets It seems especially sad that this is true at ChristmastimeBut I think this lies at the heart of who this spunky little girl isshe is not a naughty child she is a parent less one and as such is free spirited Her imagination is not encumbered by a mother or father with conventional rules of good behaviorStill Eloise has patched together her own rules of how to treat others which include giving presents to the people who work at or are guests of the Plaza Hotel where she lives That Eloise's efforts at bringing holiday cheer are not exactly appreciated by her audience is lost on the little girl in her unbridled enthusiasm for the holiday That irrepressible spirit and utter lack of inhibition make her a humorous and endearing characterIt is that joie de vivre which makes the book fun instead of melancholy Kay Thompson captures Eloise's rollicking adventures in her rhymes and made up words The charming illustrations by Hilary Knight convey her boundless energy and milk belly; whirling around creating havoc ruffling feathers and warming hearts in the festive atmosphere of the elegant hotel
