Overview

Babar's USA by Laurent de Brunhoff, Zephir

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.

About the Author

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

When I was much, much younger than today, Captain Kangaroo used to read Babar books on TV and I was hooked. Guess What? They are just as relevant today! Long live Babar for generations to come.
