First published in 1978, this book turns Babar fans into detectives. Babar shows children that detective work is fun but not easy. When he, his family, and the Old Lady go to town for the unveiling of a gold statue, they soon find that a thief is on the loose. First, a piano is missing, then Babar's car disappears, and finally the statue isn't where it's supposed to be! With only a few clues and careful eyes, Babar, Arthur, and the Old Lady must track down the thieves and use their ingenuity to think of ways to capture them.

He has created more than 30 books about the world-renowned elephant and his family, most recently the best-selling Babar's Museum of Art and Babar's Yoga for Elephants.
