Synopses & ReviewsA nonstop action adventure
It's Isabelle to the rescue when her father is mysteriously kidnapped while the two are on a camping trip. Babar's little daughter proves herself to be brave and clever when she tracks down her father with the help of a lion, a snake, and a monkey. The adventure is only just beginning when she finds the elephant king, he's being held in a hidden city by a group of strange elephants with striped ears! How plucky Isabelle manages to help her father escape makes for an action-packed adventure that will keep children on the edge of their seats as much as it did when the book was first released in 1993.
First published in 1993 as The Rescue of Babar, this adventure-packed book is being re-released to delight a whole new generation of Babar-lovers. When Babar and little Isabelle go camping, Babar is mysteriously kidnapped! Isabelle must track him down herself--so she enlists the help of some animal friends (a lion, a snake, and a monkey). She discovers that he is being held captive by strange elephants with striped ears. Who are these elephants? What do they want with Babar? How will she help him escape? Babar fans will be thrilled by the pluck of young Isabelle as she earns a medal of honor.
When Babar is kidnapped in this adventure, little Isabell must use all of her courage and common sense to rescue him.
