Laurent de Brunhoff (born August 30, 1925) is a French author and illustrator, known primarily for continuing the Babar the Elephant series of children's books, created by his father, Jean de Brunhoff. The children's classic, Babar, began as a bedtime story that Cécile de Brunhoff told her young sons, Laurent and Mathieu, in 1930, when they were five and four years old, respectively

Laurent de Brunhoff has kept the spirit of Babar and his family alive for more than 50 years. Originally created by Laurent’s mother as a bedtime story, Babar the elephant first came to life through the art of Laurent’s father, Jean de Brunhoff, who produced seven books about the character before his untimely death. Building on his father’s original framework, Laurent has gone on to provide many new adventures for the elephant family while giving them new spirit through his use of line and color. Laurent de Brunhoff lives in Connecticut with his wife, writer Phyllis Rose.

Babar's old enemy Rataxes may be acting friendly, but the rhino king. Babar comes to America and visits all of the usual tourist attractions, with which all of us are familiar.

Echoing recent political change and prescribing more peaceable strategies, Brunhoff adds still another episode . Next he steals the elephants' water and forces them into battle.

Echoing recent political change and prescribing more peaceable strategies, Brunhoff adds still another episode to the annals of the popular elephant king. Urged by an evil witch, rhinoceros King Rataxes plots against Babar; he invites him to dine, but enjoys Babar's company so much that he forgets to have his soldiers take him prisoner. Calling for single combat, Babar defeats the rhino (who has seized the advantage of having his back to the sun) by dazzling him with light reflected from his shield.

Babar's Battle
  • This book has Rhinos (Retaxes) in it and that is all my daughter cares about, so this book was a win!

  • War. Mean rhinos, kind elephants. Conflict that takes the characters (Rataxes and his band, anyway) to the brink of violence...It's fine to anthropomorphize to make a point, and with Babar the point is fine, because he's kind, thoughtful, and peaceful. But the poor rhinos, the treatment they receive here, is pathetic...
    Please -- pass on this one. Go with Shel Silverstein or other rhino authors. Early Babar books, fine...

  • I think the title can be a little jolting, because who wants to teach their children about war. But if you're like me, and your children are exposed to NO television, this book is perfectly fine and a safe way to introduce a disagreement, or as they are calling it, "battle". There is nothing too rough about this book, but I also love the Wully-Wully book. I recommend all of the Babar books.
