Babar & that Rascal Arthur
by Laurent de Brunhoff

Babar’s irrepressible little cousin at large

This 1948 tale by the son of Babar’s creator features the antics of naughty little cousin, Arthur. This time the trickster winds up on the other end of practical joking. King Babar and his family (which now numbers three children) are joined by faithful Zephyr, the monkey, as well as Babar’s rascally cousin. Scorning seaside amusements Arthur seeks the thrills of the airport; he stows away on top of a plane, and from then on undergoes a series of mishaps involving many other animals. Conflict also appears in the form of the rhino pilot and some nasty crocodiles who resent being cheated out of their dinner. Arab hospitality is demonstrated at the reunion dinner and Queen Celeste proves gently maternal. One wonders if this time Arthur has learned his lesson—and if so, what might that be? But still, without drama/conflict there would not be much of a story…
