Synopsis:

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

About the Author

Laurent de Brunhoff has kept the spirit of Babar and his family alive for more than 50 years. Originally created by Laurentand#8217;s mother as a bedtime story, Babar the elephant first came to life through the art of Laurentand#8217;s father, Jean de Brunhoff, who produced seven books about the character before his untimely death. Building on his fatherand#8217;s original framework, Laurent has gone on to provide many new adventures for the elephant family while giving them new spirit through his use of line and color. Laurent de Brunhoff lives in Connecticut with his wife, writer Phyllis Rose.
