The Pilot and the Little Prince: The Life of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


couv PP PILOTE

Peter Sís is a worldwide known author and illustrator. He has created a beautiful album about Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s life.

« When I was about 12 or 13, my father gave me The Little Prince. He was making sure that I knew it was a special book. I’d seen the name of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, but to me it seemed a very French name and I was not excited about him as a person. I just read the book, and it was a life-changing experience, because I was in this little country, which was sort of closed and dark, and all of a sudden there was this book which was telling me how wonderful life can be or will be…. » Peter Sis for Publisher Weekly

At the turn of the last century, was born a boy with blond hair , who would become a great adventurer …
In this time of great discoveries , we dreamed new inventions. While we were witnessing the beginnings of Aviation , Antoine already built , at the age of twelve years old, his own flying machine … And even if it did not work, it did not discourage !
Abounding in this album that caters to both children and adults , Peter Sis tells the story of this little boy who wants to realize his dream of flying. We follow , step by step , his first steps in Aeropostale, being a mechanic engineer before becoming a pilot , and we discover his unusual life . From meetings and trips that have build him, to the Second World War during which he disappeared , the magnificent and captivating boards by Peter Sis immerse ourselves completely in the life of this great aviator, who loved to read and write as he flew …
