In 1931 Jean de Brunhoff introduced French children to a little elephant by the name of Babar, a gentle, charming character whose journey from orphaned forest dweller to dapper, convivial sophisticate is chronicled in L'Histoire de Babar, the first in a series of stories that has captivated children the world over. In this book and the six that followed, de Brunhoff created an idyllic world in which Babar, wearing spats and driving a little red convertible, marries, has children, travels extensively, and is eventually crowned king of the elephants, all the while espousing a quintessentially French ideal--bonheur--and placing a high premium on family affection, discipline, and benevolence. Laurent de Brunhoff finished some of the manuscripts left incomplete on his father's death in 1937 and then wrote Babar stories of his own, continuing a storytelling legacy in which the perplexities of modern living are always reconciled with traditional values. The rendering of situations in which aplomb and elegance occur simultaneously with action and adventure is the hallmark of the de Brunhoffs' illustrations, so distinct with their bold lines and primary colors. In her unique study of the Babar milieu, Ann Meinzen Hildebrand looks at the de Brunhoffs' complete works, analyzing the thematic development of the stories and commenting on the essential role of the illustrations. Acknowledging the differences between the work of father and son, Hildebrand attributes the series' continuing popularity to the way in which both artists have created an elephant cosmos that is a mirror of real and ideal life. She shows how de Brunhoff pere et fils have eschewed simple "animal fantasy" for fascinating characters who respond to everyday situations, both tragic and frivolous, thoughtfully and act on the principles of perseverance, patience, hope, and courage. Hildebrand's comprehensive study establishes the genius of the de Brunhoffs and explains how one kindly, nondidactic elephant in a derby hat has become such a socializing force for young readers.

The past few years mark a growing scholarly interest in African children's literature in the United States. Several books on the topic have been published, and the number of articles has also increased. Recent publications have been moving away from general country surveys or studies of publishing conditions to works that analyze literary structures, themes, and illustrations or that apply Marxist, feminist, or postcolonial theories to interpret the literature. The essays in this volume either approach colonial African children's literature from a postcolonial or revisionist perspective, or discuss books published after decolonization.

Ein Buch wie ein Blockbuster: Scott Bergstroms erster Roman erscheint in 20 Ländern und wird in Hollywood verfilmt – von Kinohit-Produzent Jerry Bruckheimer («Fluch der Karibik», «Armageddon»). Vor zehn Jahren wurde Gwens Mutter ermordet, nur ihren Vater hat sie noch. Doch kurz nachdem er zu einer Geschäftsreise nach Paris aufgebrochen ist, stehen zwei Unbekannte vor Gwens Tür und erzählen eine unglaubliche Geschichte: Ihr Vater ist eigentlich CIA-Agent – und bei einem Einsatz spurlos verschwunden. Wurde er entführt? Wollte er dem Geheimdienst den Rücken kehren? Als die Ermittlungen eingestellt werden, macht Gwen sich selbst auf die Suche. Eine gefährliche Reise über mehrere Kontinente beginnt, immer dem Zentrum der Gefahr entgegen. Und Gwen erkennt: Wenn man seine Gegner besiegen will, muss man mindestens so hart und grausam werden wie sie!
