Jean de Brunhoff



Babar the Elephant is based on a bedtime story that Jean de Brunhoff’s wife invented. It’s about a young elephant named Babar, whose mother is killed by a hunter. Babar manages to escape and finds himself in a big city after leaving the jungle. When he returns to the elephant herd after a while, he decides to bring them the benefits of civilisation. Upon his return, the elephant king dies from eating a poisonous mushroom. Babar is subsequently appointed king of the elephant kingdom, because of his travel experiences and good manners. He gets married to his cousin and together they teach their four children valuable life lessons.
