Publisher Summary

Eleanor, Ellatony, Ellencake and Me

Everyone in Eleanor’s family thinks they have the perfect nickname for her. Nana thinks “Eleanor” is boring and insists on calling her “Elle,” her perfect “mademoiselle.” Papa wants to call her “Punch,” his favorite “crunch.” Dad insists on naming her “Eleanora, the movie star with so much mora.” Even Mom gets into the act, shortening her name until it’s just one letter–E! Finally, Eleanor realizes that the only person who can come up with the perfect nickname is the one who is going to use it–herself! This endearing story, told in clever and humorous rhyme, offer a unique insight into how one spunky kid relies on her sense of self to solve her problem.

A clever story about identity and the power of names, as told by Eleanor, out spunkiest heroine.
