      The story of Babar the elephants pursuit of fitness

      Here is another on of my 'blasts from the past'

      This one dates back to nineteen-mumble-something-or-another. Well no-one likes to give their age away, but glad to say it was post-decimalisation. It cost 40 New Pence.

      If you don't remember Babar the Elephant, or are just not familiar with him, he is a typical animal given human characteristics for the sake of children's entertainment. A bit of a portly chap, he always likes to wear a green suit.

      Of course being portly, it wouldn't harm him to do some exercise. In this book Babar decides to become a sportsman (or was it a dream??), with some encouragement I might add from his cousin Arthur and his monkey friend Zephir.

      The book tells the story of Babar's pursuit as a Sportsman in the Grand Sports Contests for Fathers.

      Do you think he would have won the contest?

      Well it is a rather short - it is written for young children after all - so it won't take you long to find out.

      I really do like to pick up my books from childhood and have a quick flick through them before getting back to reality.

      This one brought back a few very dim and distant memories.
