Since then, it has been translated into at least 12 languages.Its amazing how much can happen to one little elephant in the course of one little book: Babar loses his mother to a hunter, wanders into the city, gets a new wardrobe, becomes the hit of high society, marries his cousin Céleste (totally acceptable in contemporary Elephantine society), and is crowned King of the Elephants.The Story of Babar, with a delightful introduction by A A Milne, is essentially the tale of a country boy who comes to the city and, while there, comes of age. In the end, he returns home to share his knowledge and experiences with family and friends.The beautiful, delightfully detailed illustrations - de Brunhoff was a painter by trade - never fail to amuse.

(Although none of the characters seem to notice, the sight of Babar in a suit leaning against the mantel while he regales his audience with tales of the jungle is plainly hilarious.)All of the Babar books are notable for their ability to tell larger stories with simplicity and style, and The Story of Babar is no exception. Potentially troubling moments - the death of Babars mother, for example - are handled with taste, emphasizing Babars unique gift for uncovering a silver lining in the most persistent of clouds.NB: Ages 4 to 8, though the cursive writing makes it best for reading aloud.
