Event Details

Babar the Little Elephant was born in 1931 through Jean de Brunhoff’s book Histoire de Babar which enjoyed immediate success, with A. A. Milne (of Winnie the Pooh fame) introducing an English-language version in Britain and the United States just two years later.

With the story having since been translated into many other languages, including Greek, it tells of a young elephant (Babar) whose mother is killed by a hunter. Babar escapes, and in the process leaves the jungle, visits a big city and returns to bring the benefits of civilization to his fellow elephants.
