Synopsis

Babar Visits Another Planet by Laurent de Brunhoff

After a rocket ship lands near Babar and his family during a picnic, they are astonished to find themselves swept up and on their way into outer space! After a long journey on a craft with no pilot, they finally land on an unknown planet. Its inhabitants are strange-looking creatures who appear friendly and happy to see the elephants. But will Babar and his family be able to communicate with the aliens and find a way to get back to Celesteville? Originally published in 1972, this reissue brings an exciting adventure in space back to life for young readers.
