Babar the King by Jean de BrunhoffCelestville has just been built and every elephant has a home of their own. The young elephants start school with the Old Lady and her lessons are never dull. The elephants too old for school choose a profession. In Celestville Elephants work all morning and do what they want in the afternoon, sounds like a good arrangement. As always there are lots of wonderful detailed illustrations and action packed pages, a house catches fire, a monkey mistakes a venomous snake for a stick, and a dream sequence where Hieronymus Bosch style creatures represent qualities such anger, ignorance or sloth, highly imaginative and fun.
Babar: A Pair of Queens - Ep.42
The Nouvelle Observateur has labeled him a radical socialist, but then they would. Just because he believes in cradleto-the-grave social welfare. Actually, he much more closely resembles one of those affable Scandinavian monarchs who pedal bicycles into town and enter roses in competitions. He is plump, conservative and benevolent, a leader by calling and bourgeois by choice. Babar, the king of the elephants, is 50 years old, and the Centre Culturel du Marais, a little museum and gallery in the Fourth Arrondissement, is giving him a summerlong party.
This third title about Babar and his family follows the elephants as they build a magnificent city: Celesteville. Life is peaceful and contented, everyone has a job .

As its name implies, it is ruled by its first civilized citizen, Babar himself. The political regime is an elective monarchy, as described in the book The Story of Babar, which explains his election as king after the previous king dies from eating a bad mushroom. The Old Lady and her monkey Zephyr complete the court. The capital is Celesteville , which was built by Babar and named after his Queen. The name of the city is sometimes used for the country. A neighboring country is Rhino Land, ruled by the sometimes tyrannical King Rataxes.
