by | Read by Louis Jourdan

Children Ages 4-6 • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1975

An enduring children’s book combines stories of memorable characters with definitive illustrations. This is certainly the case with the De Brunhoffs’ many adventures of Babar the elephant, beginning with his childhood and continuing into the experiences he shares with his family and friends. Adding to the lasting appeal, the De Brunhoffs do not shy away from life issues. Death and birth, peace and war, patience and hard work, and sorrow and joy are shared honestly. Louis Jourdan narrates the stories in royal fashion. His deliberate, calm style gives import to the events of each story. He adds just enough accent for Cornelius, enthusiasm for Arthur, and wisdom for the Old Lady. Gentle music and sound effects help create the mood. Enjoy this regal presentation of Babar stories!
