The tales of Babar the elephant have charmed young readers since they first appeared in 1931. After his mother is killed by a hunter, Babar escapes to the city, where he meets The Old Lady and becomes educated living among men. When his cousins Celeste and Arthur find him, they help him return to the great forest, where he is crowned King of the Elephants. Filled with fantastic adventures, Babar’s tales see him build a city, found a family and even meet Father Christmas.
