Babar The Elephant – Friend or Freak?

The other night my daughter Elby pulled The Story of Babar off her bookshelf to read as her bedtime story – a welcome respite from the endless recitations of Knuffle Bunny Too, Leonardo the Terrible Monster and a few Richard Scarry books which have been on a constant loop. Let me preface this post with the fact that Ive read Babar before – not only was it read to me as a child a few million times but Id also read through it thirty-five years later with my daughter when she was (according to me) too young to fully appreciate it.
