Although Laurent de Brunhoff has been regaling us with tales of Babar for seven decades, the iconic elephant was created in 1934 by his father Jean de Brunhoff, based on stories told by his wife Cécile to their children. Orphaned in the jungle, raised in the city, Babar becomes king of the elephants, and faces many challenges (including war with the rhinoceroses) with the help of his wife Celeste, his cousin Arthur, his advisor Cornelius, and other dear friends. This set for youngsters up to 6 contains four original classics with the traditional "read aloud" cursive text: The Story of Babar, Babar's Travels, Babar the King, and Babar at Home.
