Welcome to the Parker Palm Springs, where you’ll experience a delightful time away, filled with everything you’d expect from a sunny, California vacation. There’s tennis courts and a lemonade stand, a gorgeous pool, and a lawn for croquet. But, the other guests and staff are more than a little unexpected . . .
From the New York Times bestselling photographer of Beaches, Gray Malin, comes Be Our Guest!, Malin’s first children’s picture book, compiled from his acclaimed series of photographs Gray Malin at the Parker Palm Springs. If Eloise had lived in an animal-only hotel, it would have had the style and whimsy of the Parker. Just reading Be Our Guest! will whisk children away on a temporary holiday, which is nothing less than extraordinary.
"Malin's superb and ingenious photographs should amuse a broad range of readers." —Kirkus Reviews
"In his first book for children, Malin, who specializes in lush travel photography, has created a junior version of a coffee table book. The images, all shot on location at the actual Parker Hotel in Palm Springs, are saturated with color, the pool shimmers under the desert sky, and the lighting gives all the animals an old-school Hollywood glamour." —Publishers Weekly
"A fantastical and fun hotel that will capture the attention and interest of young children. This extraordinary vacation destination will spark many return visits." —School Library Journal
