Babar continues to be one of the best-loved children's book characters ever created, selling millions of copies worldwide. Beginning in Spring 2012, Abrams will start reissuing Laurent de Brunhoffs classic Babar stories in handsome 3 piece case editions. Parents, grandparents and teachers alike can now introduce Babar and his kingdom to a whole new generation! Babar's book of colour is a fresh and fun introduction to exploring the world of colour. A visit to Barar's art studio turns into a adventure in clours and their combinations for Pom, Flora, Alexander and Isabelle. Not only do they each adopt a favorite colour, but they discover the joys of mixing two colours together to make a third. Before they know it, they're painting ten camels, pink flamingoes, blue whales and, of course, gray elephants! Babar's Book of Colour will encourage a new generation of young children to find colour in their own lives.
Laurent de Brunhoff has kept the spirit of Babar alive for more than 60 years. Babar first came to life through the art of Laurent's father, Jean de Brunhoff and Laurent has continued to create adventures for the elephant family.
