Evelyn Renold, AARP Magazine, January-February 2011: Music, Magic, and The Story of Eloise’s Mom   Kay Thompson: From Funny Face to Eloise She molded Judy Garland’s singing voice and bedded Andy Williams. She wrote the Eloise books, whose insouciant young heroine (a resident of New York City’s Plaza Hotel) inspired countless little girls to good-natured rebellion. Still, Kay Thompson—a songwriter, singer, and radio and movie star from the 1930s into the 1970s—is today not so well-known. A new bio may remedy that. In Kay Thompson: From Funny Face to Eloise, Sam Irvin tells the life story, quirks and all, of this “wildly talented and hilariously eccentric” woman who often adopted the voice of her precocious creation (“I am Eloise, and I am 6!”). —Evelyn Renold
