 Jean de Brunhoff

Jean de Brunhoff (1899-1937) was a French writer and illustrator known for creating the Babar books, the first of which appeared in 1931. The Babar books began as a bedtime story Cécile Sabouraud, Brunhoff's wife, invented for their children, Mathieu and Laurent. The boys liked the story of the little elephant so much that they took it to their father and asked him to illustrate it. After the first book Histoire de Babar, six more titles followed before Jean de Brunhoff died of tuberculosis at the age of 37. He was buried in Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
