This charming collection of five French illustrated classics follows the adventures of the world's best-loved elephant, Babar. In this glorious collection of stories we follow Babar the elephant as he becomes king of his people, builds a city, founds a family and even meets Father Christmas. Tested by difficult trials - from snakes to fire to runaway prams - he always comes out on top, with the help of patience, determination and, on one memorable occasion, a flight of winged elephants. One of the most iconic series of animal books in history, Babar has become a household name both as a character in children's books and on TV. Jean de Brunhoff's exquisite stories have charmed readers around the world for 80 years, and fans of the king of the elephants can now cherish a collection of his tales in this beautiful gift book format.
