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.
