Histoire de Babar

This childhood favorite, first published in 1931, is still at the top of my list. See a portfolio of charming illustrations, courtesy of the New Yorker, here.

New Yorkers can also visit the Morgan Library & Museum’s exhibition, "Drawing Babar: Early Drafts and Watercolors." running through January 4th.

Oh, my absolute favorite childhood character. Well also in the lineup: Eloise, Berenstain Bears and Jem.

But Babar was the cutest!
