Synopsis

Babar Comes to America by Laurent de Brunhoff

This is a reissue of a book first published in 1965. When Babar and his family first travelled to the U.S. it was in 1965. Among the places they visited were NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, the suburbs, Death Valley, the forests and many others.Today children can look at the book, and see things and places that no longer exist - such as flying on Pan Am (and the Pan Am building is featured), people dressed in 60s fashions and the skyline of New York City that is missing the World Trade Centre.

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.
