My favorite part about the book was when they left the city.

It's about an elephant that acted like a person and then went back to be king. If you like talking animals it would be a good book for you.

Babar’s childhood ended sadly but he makes friends in the city. Later Babar becomes known by the elephants. This is a short book but it’s good and I like the books about him because he is so adventurous.
