ELLA is a loving, modern parody of ELOISE, one of my favorite children's books of all time. I was inspired by my own daughter, who was six when I wrote ELLA, and by my beloved Brooklyn, which I love to gently make fun of.

"Perfectly cheeky and sure to provide smiles to both adults and kids alike, this humorous homage is a must-have for parents who fell in love with Kay Thompson’s classic Eloise and want to share that same sense of mischief and adventure with their kids." - Bookish
