Description

In a tiny corner of Brittany, one small village of indomitable Gauls hold out against the almighty, all-conquering Romans. Another thing that really irked me had nothing to do with the plot, but the translation for this book was extremely clunky and awkward. On the drive there, he becomes engaged to the girl elephant, not even mourning his recent split from Old Lady.

So far we have some questioning aspects, but like I said before, since this is a children's book and they often account for believing in the unbelievable, I was willing to give it a pass. Pictorial boards with light green cloth spine, minor shelf wear and slight darkening at board edges, previous owner's name on endpaper. First, Babar's mother is killed by a hunter, but at the end of the book when Babar sets up his perfect elephant society, the idea that a human can come in a shoot a citizen is never addressed.As a child I was drawn to Babar (a name I just recently learned is pronounced with emphasis on the second syllable --buh-BAR) partly because the books were written in cursive handwriting.

A global cultural phenomenon, whose fans span generations, Babar stands along with Disney's Mickey Mouse as one of the most recognized children's characters in the world. It's been a while since I've read such a bizarre book, and it's been even longer than that that I've read a bizarre children's book.But when I started asking my son what it was about he got upset and started listing all the reasons he hated it. This third book in the series follows the founding of Celesteville, named after Babar's wife, a city that would become the setting for many subsequent adventures of the elephant king and his friends.
