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.
