Books by Jean de Brunhoff. The first seven Babar albums were reprinted and millions of copies were sold all around the world, but they were all abridged; they had 30 pages instead of the original Rereading this as an adult, I was struck by how very un-sweet this supposedly sweet tale is, and I’m not thinking of the colonialist themes alone. Jeez, look through my books that I’ve read with my daughter and I guess I should be in jail.

We offer unbeatable prices, quick shipping times and a wide selection second to none. I’d hate to spend a day with these people. Without further ado he comes to a city, where he leads a life of a young gigolo for a few years.
His cousins join him later and later they all return to the jungle beause the cousin’s family was looking for them. I highly doubt that as a result of reading this, they will grow up to be colonialists and proponents of the “white man’s burden” and all of that truly awful stuff.
