Babar and Father Christmas


Jean De Brunhoff, Peter Ustinov

A large format facsimile edition with hand-written lettering--a feature of the original French editions--captures the essence of the original version of this timeless classic. Babar hears that his children have written to Father Christmas, but have had no reply. Babar decides to ask Father Christmas to come to the land of the elephants to give all the children presents. But first, he has to find him. With the help of an old book and a little dog, Babar at last discovers where the real Father Christmas lives. After a long, cold journey through the snow, Babar meets Father Christmas and invites him for a holiday. When Christmas comes, Father Christmas has a special surprise for Babar. --Philippa Reece
