As a young elephant in a strange land, Babar's story begins when he is befriended by an old lady and given a wonderful red sports car and a wallet. We follow Babar on his many adventures and travels, listening as he marries Celeste, builds the city of Celesteville, meets Father Christmas, raises his children, takes a trip to America, and receives a very special birthday surprise.

About the Author
Jean De Brunhoff, a French painter, began his stories to accompany drawings he made for his sons. They so loved the stories that their father decided to create an illustrated book about Babar's many adventures. Laurent De Brunhoff, a son of Babar's creator, continued the Babar series with Babar Comes to America and Babar's Birthday, which are included here.
