"In the great forest, a little elephant is born..."

Babar, now king of the elephants and still wearing his ‘nice green suit’, has remained one of the most popular heroes of children’s literature, with children and of course their nostalgic parents and grandparents.

A rare interview of Laurent de Brunhoff, author and illustrator, known primarily for continuing the Babar series of children's books, created by his father, Jean de Brunhoff.

The Arts Decoratifs’ museum in Paris is celebrating the eightieth anniversary of Babar. The exhibition retraces the adventures of this hero of children’s literature since his creation in 1931.
