Babar Loses His Crown (Babar)

Babar Loses His Crown (Babar) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- Unlike other reissues, this book has very brief and simple text (originally a Random House Beginning Reader)
- This reissue of a classic Babar book is a funny mystery in which children can empathize with Babar in his worry for losing the crown and the embarrassment appearing in public without it.
- The success of Babar's Museum of Art, Babar's Yoga for Elephants and the Babar backlist by Laurent de Brunhoff shows the continuing appeal of this classic character.
- Laurent de Brunhoff has received excellent publicity for his new Babar titles (including a recent interview on NPR and an exhibition of his Babar's Museum artwork at the Art Institute of Chicago). This has increased Babar's visibility to the bookbuying public.
Babar merchandise includes everything from plush toys (Crocodile Creek) to children's dinnerware (Kiss the Frog); Babar is also featured in his own cartoon on HBO Family, weekdays at 6am and 11:30am.

Synopsis:

A Babar classic now back in print!

First published in 1967, this classic Babar is available in a new format.

Everything looks great for Babar and his family's trip to Paris-until his luggage gets mixed up with another passenger's at the train station-and Babar loses his crown! The search is on for the mysterious "Moustache Man" who has carried off the crown, and Babar becomes more and more concerned as the time approaches for his evening out on the town, where he'll be mortified to show up without it.

A fun mystery in which children can empathize with poor Babar, who must appear in public without everything "just so".
