But after Isabelle sees her father Babar on TV, pleading for her to come back home, her friends fly her home in their hang gliders. This is like any family storyof more interest to surrounding relatives than the world at large. But some readers will want to meet Isabelle and renew friendship with characters from the other, better Babar stories. Ages 48. (April)
