Customer Review

on May 29, 2014
Only the remarkable Peter Sis could write about Antoine de Saint-Exupery with the same gentle touch as the pilot himself. The book's beauty is indescribable. Page after page, we accompany Antoine on his life's journey. When the page is turned, the blood of the Germans' assault on France is doused by the blue of the ocean and the glow of the moon. From the whimsy of Manhattan's alligator pose to the glistening rise of an image of THE LITTLE PRINCE on the following pages--I catch my breath with its beauty.
Beyond that, it's a great true story of a pilot with a dream. Sis has taken us as close to the "glittering planet next to the stars" as we can go in this life. (Lift the book jacket to discover the embossed airplane. This sort of detail is rarely found in contemporary books.)
