Babar the Magician by Laurent de Brunhoff


Babar the Magician by Laurent de Brunhoff

Babar has been taking magic lessons, and he decides to put on a show at the palace. First, Babar makes two doves fly out of his hat. Then, he covers Flora with his cloak - and pulls it away to reveal Arthur! Babar even uses magic to make Zephir the monkey float out of the room. However, will Babar be able to get Zephir back? Twenty-five years after its first publication, Babar the Magician enchants a whole new generation of Babar fans.
