ELOISE was not originally targeted to children, despite its 6-year-old heroine and picture book format. This first edition was instead marketed as a "book for precocious grownups," as printed on the top of the dust jacket. Little Eloise was the larger-than-life Thompson, a famous singer and Hollywood vocal coach for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Liza Minelli, and Judy Garland - redirected into the form of a spunky, pampered little girl who lives at the Plaza Hotel. But Eloise was so charming to girls of her own age that the Plaza was soon swamped by calls from callers asking for Eloise.
