Babar's Museum of Artby Laurent De Brunhoff
Synopses & Reviews
"[A] whimsical, wry caper....Adding to the value of this impressive volume is a large, handsomely reproduced pull-out poster featuring nine of the 'masterpieces' from the book, framed in gold leaf. A visual treat all around." Publishers Weekly
"In keeping with his father's original vision, Laurent de Brunhoff...injects the book with humor that's based on the incongruity of elephants living a cosmopolitan life." Emily Jenkins, The New York Times Book Review
"As entertaining as it is instructive, this is a great choice for museum-bound families as well as teachers." Gillian Engberg, Booklist
"That venerable elephant returns in another classically plotless but curiously appealing outing....
"Consider this an introduction to museums for the youngest readers, especially for Babar fans. Older students will find entertaining comparisons to classic art collections." School Library Journal
"[T]his wonderful book is such a great tool for children....What this book does for children is to open up their horizons and give them a freedom in how they look at art and also, one hopes, how they create their own art." Marya Jansen-Gruber, Children's Literature
