From the Publisher: Eloise is a little girl who lives in Norfolk. She is not yet pretty but she is already a Person. Henry James would want to study her. Queen Victoria would recognize her as an Equal. The Norfolk Admirals would want to have her on their side. Lewis Carroll would love her (once he got over the initial shock). She knows everything about The Nursery. She is interested in people when they are not boring. She has Inner Resources. If you take her home with you, you will always be glad you did.
From the Mom: She IS, in fact, already pretty, and if you take her home with you, you will only be happy until I find you.
