Laurent de Brunhoff is the son of French author and illustrator Jean de Brunhoff, the creator of Babar the elephant. Babar originally appeared in bedtime stories that Madame de Brunhoff shared with her children. Jean de Brunhoff died of tuberculosis in 1937; Laurent was 12 at the time, and considered the beloved elephant a member of the family. In 1945 he began to create and publish his own stories about Babar.
