About the Author

Laurent de Brunhoff has kept the spirit of Babar and his family alive for more than fifty years. Originating as a bedtime story told by Laurent's mother, Babar first came to life though the art of Laurent's father, Jean de Brunhoff, who produced seven books about the character. Laurent built on his father's work and created many adventures for the elephant family, giving the series new spirit though his use of line and colour.
