The Story of Babar, Paperback

The Story of Babar Paperback



This charming French illustrated classic follows the adventures of the world's best-loved elephant, Babar. "If you love elephants, you will love Babar and Celeste," writes A.

A. Milne in his preface to The Story of Babar. "And if you have never loved elephants, you will love them now." Jean de Brunhoff's tales of Babar have charmed readers around the world for 80 years.

His stories have followed the king of the elephants as he builds a city, founds a family and even meets Father Christmas.

Tested by difficult trials - from snakes to fire to runaway prams - he always comes out on top, with the help of patience, determination and, on one memorable occasion, a flight of winged elephants.

One of the most iconic series of animal books in history, Babar has become a household name both as a character in children's books and on TV.
