Two New York City icons unite in The Eloise Collection, four classic Eloise stories: Eloise; Eloise in Paris; Eloise in Moscow; and Eloise at Christmas Time together in one amazing audio compilation. Join Bernadette Peters as she introduces you to the life and adventures of Eloise—a one-of-a-kind audio event!
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.
