School's out for the summer in this latest early reader in the Robin Hill School series. Hannah's heading to the beach with her mom and has big plans to hunt for treasure. But before she can put shovel to sand, she sees Mrs. Connor her teacher! How can a teacher be at the beach? How can she be wearing a swimsuit? This humorous early reader, with large type, simple vocabulary, and cheerful, summery cartoonlike pictures, is ideal for beginning readers, many of whom may relate to Hannah's shock at seeing her teacher anywhere but behind a desk.--Kelley, Ann Copyright 2010 Booklist
Margaret McNamara
Kay Thompson (1909-1998) was a singer, dancer, vocal arranger, and coach of many MGM musicals in the 1940s. The Eloise character grew out of the voice of a precocious six-year-old that Miss Thompson put on to amuse her friends. Collaborating with Hilary Knight on what was an immediate bestseller, Kay Thompson became a literary sensation when Eloise was published in 1955. The book has sold more than two million copies to date. Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight created four more Eloise books, Eloise in Paris, Eloise at Christmas, Eloise in Moscow, and Eloise Takes a Bawth.

Hilary Knight, son of artist-writers Clayton Knight and Katharine Sturges, was educated at the Art Students League, where he studied with Reginald Marsh. Besides the Eloise books, Hilary Knight has illustrated more than fifty books for children, six of which he wrote himself. He lives and works in New York City, not far from The Plaza Hotel.

Margaret McNamara is the author of the Robin Hill School series, and she gets many ideas from her daughter's own school experiences. She lives in New York City.
