De Brunhoff's popular pachyderm is back in a pair of paper-over-board books written by Ellen Weiss. Celeste's children scramble to find the perfect presents for her in Babar: A Gift for Mother, with images adapted by Judith Gray. When Isabelle thinks she is too young to make a gift or to do chores to earn enough to buy one, Babar helps her come up with something wonderful. In Babar and the Runaway Egg, with images adapted by Jean-Claude Gibert, a half-hatched egg leads everyone on a wild goose chase one spring day.
