For those unfamiliar with the Eloise books: this is a wrong that you simply must right. Written by Kay Thompson and illustrated by Hilary Knight, the children’s book series told the story of Eloise, a precocious young girl who lived a ridiculous (but wonderful) life in New York’s Plaza Hotel.
Illustrator Joana Avillez has now offered her own modern interpretation for New York magazine. So, what would Eloise be like if she were created today, 58 years later? The same trouble-maker, but she lives in Brooklyn, has a babysitter who attended art school, courts angel investors at the Wythe Hotel bar, and wears weird Celine hats.
