A Parachuting Pachyderm

This original illustration of Babar's cousin Arthur parachuting to earth is from Laurent de Brunhoff's first book Babar et ce coquin d'Arthur. Laurent took over the Babar series which was created by his father Jean de Brunhoff based on stories his mother told Laurent and his brother Mathieu. In 2004, Laurent donated much early Babar material to the Morgan Library & Museum in New York City.
