Kathy Bates

Published in 1955, this delightful book was a gift from my Aunt Lee who worked at Cokesbury Bookstore. She sent us lots of books at Christmas. I loved Eloise’s pug, Weenie and her turtle, Skipperdee—often lost, but always found. I got an Eloise doll that Christmas too. Hilary Knight’s whimsical illustrations bring to life this unforgettable character.
