My favorite Children’s Books: Babar, what else? I’ll add your comments.

Babar: A wonderful gift for your favorite child.

For more: I talk about Tintin, Babar. 

 Edward Eager and Bill Peet and Tintin and…of course…Babar are great! Asterix! Sylvester and the Magic Pebble! Ferdinand the Bull! The original Curious Georges! What else? Please comment.

I once got to have dinner with Monsieur de Brunhoff and his wife through my friend Ted Rose: surely, for yours truly, a highlight of this life thus far.

For Babar, when I was boy, was one of my heroes, and though I’ve lost most of my childhood possessions, I grateful to still have my Babar books.


Babar turns 80, still going strong…but who will take over the enterprise?
