Babar's Battle by Laurent de Brunhoff


Babar's Battle by Laurent de Brunhoff

Beginning in Spring 2001, Abrams began to reissue the backlist of original Laurent de Brunhoff Babar stories. For Spring 2002, Abrams presents Babar's Battle and Babar's Birthday Surprise. Both books are reproduced from the original artwork. Is everything as calm and peaceful in Celesteville as it seems? Celeste suspects Babar's enemy, Rataxes the rhinoceros, is up to no good. When the elephants discover that their beautiful lake is being drained and their water supply is gone, Babar knows that he might have to go into battle to get it back. As the elephants prepare to fight the rhinoceroses, Babar hopes that a clever plan might help avoid a war. Babar's Battle, originally published in 1992, shows young readers that wit and courage are far mightier than brute force.
