Christmas is almost here and Eloise and Nanny are out doing their shopping. Eloise loves the way the shop windows look; she loves trying on new outfits and looking at all the toys in the toy department. She loves spreading a little Christmas cheer when she gets the opportunity - her own brand of Eloise Christmas cheer. Of course Eloise does do certain things that are, perhaps, a little hard for long suffering Nanny to take. But we, and Nanny, have come to expect these sorts of occurrences when we are around this very singular little girl.

In this cheerful and often amusing book young readers will have a grand time sharing Christmas with Eloise. By lifting large flaps, readers reveal Eloise's many colorful antics which will bring a smile to every face and a warm spot to every heart. For, after all, who can resist Eloise.
