About the Author
Jean De Brunhoff, a French painter, began his stories to accompany drawings he made for his sons. They so loved the stories that their father decided to create an illustrated book about Babar's many adventures. Laurent De Brunhoff, a son of Babar's creator, continued the Babar series with "Babar Comes to America" and "Babar's Birthday, " which are included here.
