Synopsis

Babar Visits Another Planet by Laurent de Brunhoff

Babar continues to be one of the best-loved children's book characters ever created, selling millions of copies worldwide. Beginning in Spring 2012, Abrams will start reissuing Laurent de Brunhoff's classic Babar stories in handsome 3 piece case editions. Parents, grandparents and teachers alike can now introduce Babar and his kingdom to a whole new generation! Blast off to a thrilling action-packed adventure in outer space! Babar's fame has spread to the farthest corners of the universe he discovers when he and his family are abducted by aliens! Fortunately, the aliens are friendly, if a little strange-looking. And they have built a remarkable floating city. With swimming pools in their living-rooms! As Arthur says, Truly, these elephants with curly ears know how to live! Everything goes smoothly at first...but soon cultural differences cut the royal visit short. Will Babar and his family find a way to get home to Celesteville right away? Originally published in 1972, Babar Visits Another Planet has valuable lessons of tolerance and acceptance for our times. And the exciting outer-space story will keep young readers enthralled until the very last blast off!
