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.
