There have been major exhibitions of his work and his father¿s work in 1981 at the Centre Culturel du Marais in Paris, in 1983-84 in the United States (Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, Baltimore Museum of Art, Toledo Museum of Art, among others).

Publisher's Weekly Review

A pair of Laurent de Brunhoff books starring everyone's favorite elephant make their reappearance. Babar's ABC (1983) uses full-page and panel vignettes to cover all 26 letters, starting with the airport, Alexander and Arthur, proceeding through Babar and Celeste, and ending with Zephir the monkey zipping up his sleeping bag. Scenes of the circus and firefighters coming to the rescue add to the excitement. Babar's Little Girl (1987) begins with the birth of Babar and Celeste's new baby, Isabelle, and follows her through her first big adventure, in which the family thinks she's lost, but Isabelle knows right where she is.
