Publisher Comments:

Celebrate Babar as he celebrates America!

 

An all-new Babar book featuring photos of the USA collaged with original Babar illustrations for an exciting tour of modern America

 

In a new picture book featuring the internationally beloved and bestselling Babar, the lovable elephant and his family travel across the United States. Using collage—watercolor illustrations were pasted onto digital photographs—to put the characters directly into real-life scenes, Laurent de Brunhoff takes Babar and his family around the country to see the sights, from New York, where they see such icons as the Brooklyn Bridge and FAO Schwarz; to Memphis, Tennessee, where they see Graceland; to Key West, Florida, where they enjoy the beach; to Wyoming, where they see Yellowstone National Park; and to California, where they see the La Brea Tar Pits, the Golden Gate Bridge, and more; and to everywhere in between.

 The innovative format and clever design are perfect complements to the reissue of Babar Comes to America. Readers new and familiar will revisit this volume to see the sights and will be inspired to pack their trunks and head out across the country.

Synopsis:

In a brand-new adventure, Barbar and his family return to the United States and visit such landmarks as New York City, Key West, Hollywood, and the Grand Canyon. Featuring photos of the USA combined with original Babar illustrations, this work is sure to take little ones on an exciting tour of modern America. Full color.

About the Author

Laurent de Brunhoff has kept the spirit of Babar and his family alive for more than 50 years. Originally created by Laurents mother as a bedtime story, Babar the elephant first came to life through the art of Laurents father, Jean de Brunhoff, who produced seven books about the character before his untimely death. Building on his fathers 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.
