We really can't think of anyone better to create a picture-book life of airman-author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry than Peter Sís; his whimsical, delicately detailed drawings capture the sense of mystery and wonder that made books like The Little Prince so magical. Sís—who won the 2012 Hans Christian Andersen Award and has had seven books on the New York Times 10 Best Illustrated Books of the Year list—tells Saint-Exupéry's story with stunning, page-filling artwork. Facts and events of his life are sprinkled across maps, smaller drawings, and dream-like landscapes, giving fans of all ages a true portrait.
