horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Babar's Little Girl
by Laurent Brunhoff
Age Range: 6-8
King Babar and Queen Celeste are expecting an addition to their family. Soon they have a new daughter – Isabelle. She is playful, feisty and very curious, and is adored by her family. One day during a family walk in the mountains Isabelle disappears without telling anyone. She has a lovely time, playing hide-and-seek by herself. She runs, she skips, she jumps and sings loud never thinking that anyone might wonder where she is!
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.
