Every child’s favorite elephant, Barbar, returns in this unusual and heartwarming Christmas story. Babar’s children have caught wind of a fellow in Man’s country named Father Christmas who brings joy and toys to little children. “If only we could bring him here,” they wish. So they write the Christmas saint a letter inviting him to visit them. When they get no reply, Babar, ever the good father, rushes out to find the red-suited one. After much searching, and with the help of a dog named Duck, Babar reaches Father Christmas’s workshop in the snow. Can Babar find a way to bring him to Elephants’ country?
Jean de Brunhoff (1899–1937) was a writer and illustrator. Initially, he and his wife Cécile created the Babar series for their children. Brunhoff was born in Paris.
