Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A reprint of a 1975 edition, Babar and the Wully-Wully chronicles the adventures of the now famous elephant children of King Babar and Queen Celeste. Pom, Flora and Alexander, the children, are walking one day near Celesteville when they suddenly encounter a strange little animal. "What is that?" whispered Flora. "A Wully-Wully," answers Pom. They take the Wully-Wully home and enjoy his antics, but soon discover that the Wully-Wully prefers the out of doors. While on a picnic, the Wully-Wully is kidnapped by Rataxes, a nasty rhinoceros. Pom, Flora, Alexander and their monkey friend, Zephir, spy on the rhinoceros compound and discover that Wully-Wully is being mistreated. They devise a plan to rescue the Wully-Wully. They are successful, but the rhinos retaliate. Mild mannered Flora comes to the rescue by appealing to the heart of everyone. It's a charming story, if a bit long for the preschool set. The illustrations are colorful and pure Celesteville. Babar fans will be delighted. 2001 (orig. 1975), Harry N. Abrams, $16.95. Ages 4 to 7. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger
