Who better to guide anyone around Paris than Babar, that beloved Francophile elephant? His youngest daughter, Isabelle, is going to Paris alone for the first time, and he tells her how to feel at home there. He explains that to enjoy Paris to the fullest, it's as important to go to cafes and street markets as it is to see the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. Readers young and old will benefit from the inside advice he offers in Babar's Guide to Paris. Laurent de Brunhoff's glorious paintings of the City of Light are the culmination of his long career of chronicling the life and opinions of Babar, who has been called "the most famous Frenchman in the world."
Laurent de Brunhoff is the son of Babar creator Jean de Brunhoff. Continuing his father's legacy, he is an accomplished author and artist and has originated dozens of Babar books over sixty years. He and his wife, Phyllis Rose, live in Key West, Florida.
