OK, caveats first- Babar has not aged as well as, say, "Make way for Ducklings", or one of Maurice Sendak's books. The way Babar speaks can sound a touch anachronistic... And then there is the island of the cannibals... hoo boy. If you are the sensitive, liberal type who gets worked up about "micro-triggers".. just move on.
But, damn, you will be missing a great story. Babar and Celeste get into all types of scrapes, but with pluck, resourcefulness and courage always find their way through. "The Travels of Babar", although the second book in a long series, is probably the best - "The Empire Strikes Back" of the Babar series. Wonderfully written and illustrated, it should be 5 stars, but unfortunately docked a star for modern political correctness. But if you don't care about that and just want an engaging, rollicking adventure- buy with confidence

I had loving memories of reading Babar as a child, but had managed to block out the extremely racist bits. When I read to my kid I have to skip a bunch of pages.

Brings me back to my childhood! This book is beautiful and bright, with heartwarming characters and storyline.
  • Windworker
Wonderful books, however this is not printed in the original cursive writing. If you want the cursive you will need to find an older or vintage copy. Delightful.
