About the Author
Laurent de Brunhoff has kept the spirit of Babar alive for more than 50 years. Originating as a bedtime story told by Laurentand#8217;s mother, Babar first came to life through the art of Laurentand#8217;s father, Jean de Brunhoff, who produced seven books about the character. Laurent built on his fatherand#8217;s work and created many adventures for the elephant family, giving the series new spirit through his use of line and color. Laurent and his wife, Phyllis, split their time between New York City and Key West, Florida.
