SORT BY Relevancy
For fans of Kay Thompson’s Eloise comes a brilliant parody updated for the tiny hipsters of Brooklyn, Austin, Portland, and beyond. Like its predecessor, ELLA by Mallory Kasdan and illustrated by Marcos Chin, tells the story of a spunky six year-old girl who lives in a hotel—but if you think you know the story, think again. Ella has a nanny called Manny. He has tattoos for sleeves and he might go in with some guys to buy a grilled cheese truck.
Mallory Kasdan is a writer and voice actor. She writes about parenting and culture and does voice-overs for television and radio.
Join Mallory and me on Tuesday, February 17, 10-11 A.M. CT US, as we discuss about ELLA, which was published by Viking Children’s Books in January of 2015.

Kim Kardashian is going to Saudi Arabia!
Rumors are circulating that she has accepted a longstanding invitation from a Saudi prince to spend an evening with him in exchange for $1 million.
An indecent proposal, perhaps?
Although a frequent visitor to glitzy Dubai, Kim's other trips to the region have not always gone well. In 2012, a trip to Bahrain to open a milkshake franchise sparked protests, with police firing tear gas to break up the demonstrations.
Let's just hope that Kim remembers to pack her abaya. We don't want her to violate the strict Saudi dress codes!
Meanwhile, the world continued to lurch from one ridiculous story to another:
