Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The classic story of literature's most beloved elephant. After his mother is killed by a hunter, Babar avoids capture by escaping to the city, where he is befriended by the kindly Old Lady. Later, with cousins Celeste and Arthur, he returns to the great forest to be crowned King of the Elephants. With the original illustrations from Jean de Brunhoff's 1931 classic, this first Babar story has enchanted generations.

Horn Book Review

These editions of three beloved Babar books (and one deservedly less well-known book) aren't exactly lavish gift-book editions. The paper is thin, and while these books will fit easily on bookshelves, the illustrations are less arresting than in the original oversize editions. [Review covers these titles: [cf2]Babar and His Children, Babar and Zephir, Babar the King[cf1], and [cf2]The Story of Babar, the Little Elephant[cf1].] From HORN BOOK Spring 2003, (c) Copyright 2010.
