Review: Babar by Jean de Brunhoff

Hi everyone!!! :)

I hope you're having a great weekend.

Today I want to share with you my thoughts of this book:

this book contains the six books the author wrote:


What is this book about? It's the story of Babar, an elephant, and his adventures. The books tells his story since he was born until he is an adult. You can see him grow and get married, have children and even meet Santa Claus. There is a book, Babar and Zephir, which is not about Babar, it's about Zephir the monkey.

My thoughts about this one:

I was really excited when I borrowed this book from the library. I had heard about Babar since I was little and I thought or I had read some of his stories or at least I had seen some cartoons about this character although I wasn't sure.

When I opened the book, I fell in love with the artwork. It's very unique and colorful. I liked the font, it was similar to handwriting and I know it's for children that they are starting reading can do it better, but I thought it was beautiful.

Now, about the first story, I think it was a bit rushed and made me feel uncomfortable. It jumped very quickly from one thing to another and also the things happened in this first book were a bit strange, such as Babar decides to buy a suit. I wasn't sure if I wanted to carry on reading the second story, but I decided to give it a go. 

The second story was better so I kept reading. The 3rd, 4th and 5th stories, I think they are the best. The 6th one,which is the one Babar is with Santa Claus,disappointed me. I expected more.

Overall I thought the books was entertaining and easy to read.

My Rating: 3 stars
