Description

Early Edition, Illustrated, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding

With an introduction by the beloved children's author, A.A.Milne. 

The Story of Babar follows Babar as he grows up after his mother is shot by some cruel hunters. 

Jean de Brunhoff was a French writer and illustrator renowned for creating the stories of Babar the elephant, first published in 1931.
