Synopsis

Babar's Yoga for Elephants by Laurent de Brunhoff

Stretch and contort with Babar as he shows you all the latest and best yoga moves. Well before yoga became fashionable via Sting and Madonna, our friend Babar and all the residents of Celesteville were finding peace and tranquillity through yoga. And now, elephants everywhere can join them! Through easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step illustrations, Babar's Yoga for Elephants presents 15 positions and stretches as well as helpful breathing exercises. The book also provides useful advice on what to do with your trunk while in position, a dilemma that human yoga books often ignore. Written by Babar himself, the book explains how yoga was introduced to Celesteville and how he and Celeste keep fit doing yoga on their many travels. Babar's Yoga for Elephants is sure to become a classic for elephants as well as their human friends.

About the Author

Laurent de Brunhoff has kept the spirit of Babar and his family alive for more than 50 years. Originally created by Laurent's mother as a bedtime story, Babar the elephant first came to life through the art of Laurent's father, Jean de Brunhoff, who produced seven books about the character before his untimely death. Building on his father's original framework, Laurent has gone on to provide many new adventures for the elephant family while giving them new spirit through his use of line and color. Laurent de Brunhoff lives in Connecticut with his wife, writer Phyllis Rose.
