‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Rescue of Babar (The)
by Phyllis Rose de Brunhoff
Age Range: 6-8
King Babar and his youngest daughter Isabelle go on a camping trip into the mountains. While Isabelle goes off to find some water Babar mysteriously disappears. It’s up to Isabelle, with the help of a lion, monkey and snake to discover where Babar is. A city in the crater of a volcano behind a secret door, a whole lot of elephants with stripy skin wearing togas and who love to listen to stories, make this another delightful Babar story by Laurent de Brunhoff.
Created by Jean de Brunhoff in 1931 from an original bedtime story by his wife, Babar has lived on through his son Laurent de Brunhoff who has kept his spirit alive for more than 50 years. Building on the original framework he has created many new and exciting adventures for the elephant family.
