About this title


When Babar disappears during a fishing trip with his daughter, it is up to Isabelle to find him and rescue him from his kidnappers.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this adventure within an adventure, Babar is kidnapped while on a camping trip with his youngest daughter, Isabelle. When the plucky little pachyderm sets off through the woods to find Babar, she meets up with a lion, a monkey and a snake, all of whom offer their services to help locate her missing father. The snake shows them a door hidden in a boulder; it is the entrance to a tunnel that leads to an elaborate city built inside the crater of a volcano. Here--masterfully rendered in de Brunhoff's characteristically lively watercolors that fill the oversized pages--the residents are striped elephants who dress in togas and carry lyres "which they stroked now and then to produce lovely music." In a typically inventive twist, the author has Isabelle buy an ice cream from a vendor for the price of singing a song (she chooses "Happy Birthday"). She then tackles the task at hand, and with great aplomb rescues Babar from his captors. Accompanied by her animal friends, Isabelle and her father make a triumphant return to Celesteville, bringing this particularly charming caper to a festive close. Ages 4-8.
