“I am a nuisance in the lobby
Me. Salome said so

I like how this book has a specific color scheme throughout the entire book.
Eloise is a picture book written by Kay Thompson with drawings by Hilary Knight. This book has a very limited amount of words on each page. Some have more than others, though. The pictures mainly tell the story. The main character, Eloise, is shown doing many different things relatable to kids.
Thought I'd give it a go (as I mostly read non-fic in childhood). Ebook formatting is odd. With its mandatory horizontal two page layout, everything is so tiny! Must try on larger device.
Congrats on your milestone and thank you for the giveaway!
Ah, it got a little cut off but oh how my daughter and I loved Eloise. I had gotten a book for her signed by Hilary Knight, illustrator of the Eloise books.
Eloise is a mischievous but charming six year old who lives on the top floor of The Plaza Hotel in New York City. She spends her days hanging out with the staff and other guests of the hotel. Now wouldn‘t that be fun and who wouldn‘t like to be in her shoes for a day?
I'm Readathoning under my warm Chicago Bears blanket this morning at #Hour 9 of #24in48. This is the oldest children's book I own. I wanted to read a book published the year I was born and found this at a garage sale for a dollar. 🙌🏻
P.S. I also grew up with Shari Lewis (Lamb Chop!) and Captain Kangaroo, and I'm still a kid at heart. 😁❤️
So, this was returned to the library today, and there were all kinds of ooh's and ahh's as I scanned it in 😆👏🏻. I love book lovers--I feel a connection, ya know? Bet you liked this book as a kid too, right? 😉 #LitsyLovesLibraries
I remember absolutely adoring Eloise as a little girl, so I was delighted when I had a chance to reread it this weekend to the sweet 3-year-old who made me an auntie. I've literally been waiting for this for the entire 3 years she's been on this planet! And I was super grateful she doesn't know how to read yet, since I had to make major edits! (Apparently this really was written for "precocious grownups" ?) @mrsmarch
