Book SynopsisSuch joy in Celesteville! Babar and Celeste have had triplets. The smallest, Alexander, has a knack for getting into predicaments. Between getting stuck in the treetops and being chased by a crocodile, he certainly keeps Babar on his toes, but the king readily admits, -Truly it is not easy to bring up a family, but how nice the babies are!- The fifth Babar story is a wonderful and heartwarming salute to parenthood which every Mom and Dad will appreciate.
From the Back CoverOne morning Babar said to Cornelius: 'Old Friend, you who have been my constant companion through good times and bad, listen now to my wonderful news. Celeste, My wife, has just told me that she is expecting a baby.'After having congratulated and thanked Babar, Cornelius puts on his full-dress uniform. Standing before the gateway if the Royal Palace, he tells his drummer to assemble the townspeople.
