Kay Thompson

Biography

Kay Thompson (1909-1998) was a singer, dancer, vocal arranger, and coach of many MGM musicals in the 1940s. The Eloise character grew out of the voice of a precocious six-year-old that Miss Thompson put on to amuse her friends. Collaborating with Hilary Knight on what was an immediate bestseller, Kay Thompson became a literary sensation when <i>Eloise</i> was published in 1955. The book has sold more than two million copies to date. Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight created four more Eloise books, <i>Eloise in Paris, Eloise at Christmas, Eloise in Moscow, </i> and <i>Eloise Takes a Bawth.</i>
