Babar on Paradise Island

Written by Laurent de Brunhoff

Published by Abrams Books (May 2014).

This newest book in the beloved series is sure to delight longtime fans as well as new readers. Babar and his family are enjoying a relaxing ocean cruise when a sudden, violent storm whisks them far away from Celesteville. Shipwrecked on a desert island, they meet fabulous creatures as they explore their temporary home. Readers will appreciate the tropical locale—rendered in de Brunhoff’s trademark lush watercolors—as much as Babar and his family do while they await their eventual rescue. Fans both old and new will love spending time with Babar, Celeste, their kids, and the Old Lady in this charming tale on the high seas.

Laurent de Brunhoff is the son of Babar creator Jean de Brunhoff. He is an accomplished author and artist, and has originated dozens of popular Babar books over 60 years. He and his wife, Phyllis Rose, divide their time between New York City and Key West, Florida.
