Both my children grew up on the Babar books (and the PBS television show) so I was filled with enormous nostalgia to come across this story in the Wall Street Journal: The Morgan Library & Museum in New York is exhibiting the first illustrations for each of the initial Babar books by Jean and Laurent de Brunhoff. The WSJ review is here. The Museum site is here. Adam Gopnik writes about Babar in the September 22 issue of the New Yorker.
