Babar Visits Another Planet 
Laurent De Brunhoff ~ Random House, 1972

In memory of the greatest astronaut of all time… who remembers Babar went to space?

I kid you not.

The trip is long, but fortunately they are comfortable. They have already passed the moon and the planet Mars. The rocket continues on still farther. At last, after many days, it nears a reddish planet. «According to my calculations,» says Babar, «this planet is unknown. Whatever will we find here?»

The Old Lady musta been so proud…
