46 - The Story of Babar
Originally published by Jan De Brunhof in
1931, Babar is one of the most recognizable children’s characters in the world,
surpassed perhaps only by Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh. In the story, Babar
is captured as a child and brought to the city where he learns to become
civilized. He returns to the jungle and his fellow elephants and is instantly
raised as king. Not only does he impart his newfound knowledge of civilization
to his fellow pachyderms, but he also goes on many fabulous adventures.
