When I was younger, I remember watching the Eloise television series all the time. They were my favorite! It is about a young girl that grew up in a luxurious hotel and I found it fascinating. I recently ran across this book and thought it would be a great one to share in my classroom for some of the girls to read for fun. I would say it should be read by a 4th-5th grader, depending on their reading level. I personally have not read the book yet, but I plan to.
