Flora, Alexander and Pom find a rare animal called a Wully-Wully and everyone in Celestville is fascinated by it. Then the rhinoceros Rataxes comes and steals it. They try to get him back a few times until finally Flora goes and convinces Rataxes that they shouldn’t keep him in a cage at all. The Wully-Wully came and went as he pleased but he visited both, Flora in Celesteville and Rataxes the rhinoceros. Teachers could discuss with their class sharing and how stealing is not a good thing. If they wanted to get deeper they could talk about pets and if it is okay to domesticate animals. Teachers could have younger students write a story about sharing or about having a pet. ( )

Not an 'original original' Babar story, but still nice nevertheless. It has the traditional Babar illustrations, and the usual obvious moral to the story. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810943972, Hardcover)

Beginning in Spring 2001, Abrams began to reissue the backlist of original Laurent de Brunhoff Babar stories. For Fall 2001, Abrams presents Babar and the Ghost and Babar and the Wully-Wully. Both books are reproduced from the original artwork. Babar and the Wully-Wully, originally published in 1975, brings a lovable companion and pet to the children of Celesteville. Everyone in the country of the elephants is delighted by the unusual creature. But when Babar's family takes Wully-Wully to the country for a picnic, the little pet attracts the attention of Rataxes the rhinoceros. Wully-Wully is snatched away from the children and trapped in the city of the rhinos. Arthur and Zephir rescue Wully-Wully in a daring mission, only to have him stolen again in a mad rhino stampede! In the face of a war between the elephants and the rhinos, Flora bravely visits Rataxes-all alone. She convinces him to free the Wully-Wully so that everyone can enjoy the rare creature. This story teaches children that sharing with others brings new friends and adventures.
