Overview

In this wonderfully quirky Christmas story only Jean de Brunhoff could have created, Babar goes in search of Father Christmas. Can Babar find the yuletide saint? Will Father Christmas have time to come to Elephant country on his busiest day of the year? Maybe together Babar and Father Christmas will come up with an idea to make all the children in Elephant country very happy! With a funny cast of characters -- including a dog named Duck, quarrelsome mountain dwarves, and, of course, the overworked Father Christmas himself -- the unpredictable world of Babar is brought to colorful life!

Originally published in 1940, Babar and Father Christmas was the last picture book Jean de Brunhoff wrote before his untimely death at the age of 37. Luckily, he had completed the story and line drawings for both Babar and Father Christmas and Babar and His Children. His brother Michel, the editor in chief for the French Vogue, directed the coloring of these last two books. Jean's son Laurent was only 12 when his father died, but he was allowed to color a few of the pages.

Babar, the King of the Elephants, sets out to find Father Christmas and bring him back to visit the children of the Elephants' country.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A trio of reissues bring back the beloved elephant in a starring role. The last book to be published before his death, Jean de Brunhoff's Babar and Father Christmas (1940) follows the hero in search of Santa as he attempts to bring Yuletide cheer to Elephants' country. A few spreads were finished by de Brunhoff's then 12-year-old son Laurent. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
The last pictuer book De Brunhoff wrote before his death at 37, this story tells how Babar searches out Father Christmas so that he will make time to come to Elephant country. Babar falls through Father Christmas's roof, is revived by tomten-like elves, pleads his case to the beleaguered figure and is awarded a suit and beard. So it is Babar who brings Christmas to Elephant country. Several members of the De Brunhoff family helped complete the artist's final vision which includes some wonderfully familiar family arrangements, some lovely set pieces, and at the very least pictures that advance the story. Told in the present tense, the story, sans the script type that so many new readers found annoying in some of the original tales, introduces to a new generation of readers, the lovable elephant family that so many parents and grandparents remember from their own childhoods. 2001 (orig. 1940), Random House, $15.95. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
