414 (2014 #42). In Search of the Little Prince

written and illustrated by Bimba Landmann

Subtitled "The Story of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry," this is a picture book biography about the author of the French classic The Little Prince.

The book was originally published in Italian, as Italy is the home of the author/illustrator, Bimba Landmann.  Her soft illustrations are fanciful yet serious.  There are a number of actual photographs of and quotations from Saint-Exupéry in the book.  The amount of text on each page makes this book more appropriate for grades 3-5.
