"Here's what Beverly Hills is
Shirley Temple is a Movie Star AND a cocktail
Ditty Roy Rogers..."
Join everyone's absolutely favourite six-year-old as she goes behind the scene of Tinseltown, where she may have finally met her match. Child star Corky Durbin is the beloved on this coast, and he's starring the same film in which she's cast as extra. Of course, Eloise will manage to put Corky in his place, all the while enjoying everything from poolside breakfasts to hiding sushi in her napkin to standing in Judy Garland's footsteps at Mann's Chinese Theatre. Still, she'll never forget the little people: Weenie, Skiperdee, Nanny and a new cast of cohorts (including Monty, her Movie Mogul Mother's new driver) who make up another unforgettable entourage.
This latest hardcover original is ghostwritten by two true Hollywood insiders--the writers of 'Shrek 2'--whose flair for 'the business' will make it hot hot hot!
Based on a magazine piece Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight were working on in 1957, but which was never published. So at least, 44 years, a trip to Paris, a lovely Christmas, a voyage to Moscow, and a rather bubbly bath later, Eloise makes her silver-screen debut.
