BamBam,the friendly Prince of Valprivas (pronounced Val-pree-va) is a cat that started his life homeless. One day, a little girl with big black eyes found him and gave him to a little boy with big brown eyes named little anthony . Once fully grown, BamBam fell in love with Princess Bijou of the Château de Valprivas in France, and he moved with her to live at her castle.
Some time has now passed, and little anthony longs to see his buddy BamBam. He finally makes the long journey from the United States to France to visit the Prince at his castle. Once he arrives, little anthony marvels at how regal BamBam has become. BamBam, recognizing his old friend, showers him with love, protection, and appreciation.
With Princess Bijou by his side, BamBam hunts in the garden; and Bijou climbs big, tall trees. They give little anthony a tour of the castle, including BamBam’s favorite place—the concert hall. Together, the old friends celebrate at one of the Queen’s splendid parties.
In bringing BamBam to Valprivas, it seems an enduring friendship has been built between America and France.
