Illustrated by Tammie Lyon
Ages 4 to 6
Simon and Schuster, 2006, 0-689-87451-0
It is snowing and as Eloise loves the snow she insists that she and Nanny must go outside to play in the delightful white stuff, even though neither of them have had their breakfast yet. So, in no time at all the two are making their way out of the Plaza Hotel and across the street to Central Park. Once there Eloise sets about making a snowman. Soon she has the quintessential snowman built and yet “something is missing.”
Eloise figures out what the something is and fixes the problem only to discover that something else is missing. Back and forth to the Plaza Hotel she goes to get or to arrange for all the missing somethings that her snowman cannot do without. In her usual diva style, Eloise has the staff at the Plaza running around doing her bidding so that her snowman can be the best dressed and best housed snowman in New York City.
Eloise fans will love this new Eloise adventure in which Eloise once again shows the world that though she is a little girl who has it all living the high life, she is also an ordinary little girl who loves snow and who gets hungry if she misses her breakfast.
