Synopsis

Babar' USA by Laurent de Brunhoff

Babar and his family travel to the U.S. in this new Babar adventure. Among the places they visit: NYC, Key West, Los Angeles (Hollywood), San Francisco, Grand Canyon, and Vermont (skiing). Laurent has created a new medium for the images: he places the drawn characters of Babar and his family into photographs of the actual places. This title offers a very humorous and appealing approach!

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 colour. Laurent de Brunhoff and his wife, writer Phyllis Rose, live in the USA.
