Babar's Birthday Surprise by Laurent de Brunhoff

Babar continues to be one of the best-loved children's book characters ever created, selling millions of copies worldwide. In Spring 2012, Abrams began reissuing Laurent de Brunhoff's classic Babar stories in handsome new 3 piece case edition with less story text. Parents, grandparents, and teachers alike can now introduce Babar and his kingdom to a whole new generation! Babar's birthday is coming soon and Queen Celeste has a big surprise planned. She's having a sculptor carve a giant statue of Babar into the mountainside! But Babar loves to ride right past the spot where the work is going on. How can the elephants and their friends keep their king's birthday surprise a secret?
