Book Synopsis

Babar's Guide to Paris is a must-have picture book for fans of Babar, as well as for anyone planning a family trip to Paris.

Babar the elephant, one of the most beloved and classic characters in children's literature, showcases his favorites in this memorable trip to Paris. Laurent de Brunhoff's Paris is filled with charming elephants on every page as they enjoy all the sights and sounds of the City of Lights.

When Babar's youngest daughter, Isabelle, heads to Paris on her own for the first time, he tells her how to enjoy the iconic city to the fullest. An expert Francophile, Babar recommends food, including cafes, street markets, and brassieres; he also offers the best sightseeing tips, especially observing the Eiffel Tower from every angle, walking along the banks of the Seine, visiting the Louvre and Orangerie museums, and exploring the Luxembourg Gardens.

There's even a postcard-perfect opening scene that features the Babar family visiting the Notre Dame Cathedral. Babar shares why an elephant may be surprised by the size of an elevator, how to take the metro, how to find a restaurant to call your own, and to walk--walk as much as possible to see everything that Paris has to offer. In the end, Isabelle is encouraged to enjoy her travels, but she is also lovingly reminded to always come home to Celesteville and her family.

Readers will be eager to journey to Paris with Babar.

About the Author

Illustrator Laurent de Brunhoff is the son of Babar creator Jean de Brunhoff. He is an accomplished artist and a worthy heir to the legacy his father began in 1931. Laurent has originated dozens of Babar books over 60 years, including the New York Times bestselling Babar and the Succotash Bird, Babar's Museum of Art, Babar's Yoga for Elephants, among many others. Babar was called by the New York Times a "beloved storybook character," was praised by Where the Wild Things Are creator Maurice Sendak as "at the very heart of my conception of what turns a picture book into a work of art," was featured in USA TODAY, which said, "Few series have had such enduring appeal to young readers," and cited in The New Yorker, which wrote, "There are a few parents who haven't tried the Babar books, and the rare small child who doesn't like, or even love them."
