Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 4-7. There is a new addition to Babar's genteel family; this engaging story introduces Isabelle, an ``amazing baby'' who matures into an independent and intrepid little girl. After recording Isabelle's birth and infancy, the story gets down to its main thrust Isabelle's adventures when she is separated from her family while on a hike in the country. Wandering through the hills, she comes upon a house inhabited by two gentlemen, who invite her in to play. They pass a fine afternoon until Isabelle hears on the television that there is an alert out as to her whereabouts. Hang gliding over hilly terrain, Isabelle's two new friends speed her home, where she's warmly welcomed by her family. While the book's pink covers cater to stereotypical pink-is-for-girls-blue-is-for-boys thinking, little Isabelle is certainly no shrinking violet; her manner and adventures place her squarely in the active heroine mold, and she breathes a bit of fresh air into the studied propriety that is so much a part of Babar's world.

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Beloved King Babar and his Queen Celeste have a new addition to the familylittle Isabelle. This is her story, an account of her birth, cradle days, sitting-at-the-dining-table days, walking days, skating days and then running away. She wanders to Blue Valley, crosses the river to the house on the hill where she is welcomed by two gentleman, Boover and Picardee. 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) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
