Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Babar and his family are thrilled that Celesteville is hosting the Games! This is their chance to see the best athletes from all over the world compete and to meet new people from other countries. Everyone is wide-eyed as gymnasts fly through the air, divers make a splash, and cyclists race to the finish line!

In addition, Babar and Celesteand#8217;s children are all grown up, and romance is in the air. Babarand#8217;s daughter, Flora, likes to watch the handsome pole-vaulter Cory, from the country of Mirza. One day the two meet in the park, and love soon follows. When Cory asks Flora to marry him, everyone must come together to help them have a magnificent Mirzi wedding.

Babarand#8217;s Celesteville Games is a grand tale about sportsmanship, love, and diversity.

Praise for Babar's Celesteville Games

and#8220;From a franchise as sturdy as an elephantand#8217;s memory comes explicit international goodwill. The bookand#8217;s appeal lies in these calmingly recognizable characters participating in Olympic sports and a mixed marriage.and#8221; and#8211;Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[A] whimsical, wry caper....Adding to the value of this impressive volume is a large, handsomely reproduced pull-out poster featuring nine of the 'masterpieces' from the book, framed in gold leaf. A visual treat all around." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"In keeping with his father's original vision, Laurent de Brunhoff...injects the book with humor that's based on the incongruity of elephants living a cosmopolitan life." Emily Jenkins, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"As entertaining as it is instructive, this is a great choice for museum-bound families as well as teachers." Gillian Engberg, Booklist

Review:

"That venerable elephant returns in another classically plotless but curiously appealing outing....[A]s a deeper invitation to encounter art, it barely serves as an introduction." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Consider this an introduction to museums for the youngest readers, especially for Babar fans. Older students will find entertaining comparisons to classic art collections." School Library Journal

Review:

"[T]his wonderful book is such a great tool for children....What this book does for children is to open up their horizons and give them a freedom in how they look at art and also, one hopes, how they create their own art." Marya Jansen-Gruber, Children's Literature

Rhondalea, April 7, 2009 (view all comments by Rhondalea)
De Brunhoff's Babar encourages young readers to visit museums by establishing one of his own for young elephants. Any children's book that invites young readers to seek a broader educational experience is deserving of consideration. Babar has delighted youngsters for generations. He remains relevant, appropriate and entertaining still.
