'Extraordinary ... its poetry and the historical detail of the text, reward readers of any age over eight.'
The Sunday Times

The life story of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – an aviator, adventurer, pioneer and war hero, as well as the author of one of the world's most beloved children's books, The Little Prince.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was born in France in 1900, when aeroplanes were just being invented. He always dreamt of flying, and when he became a pilot as a young man, his adventures truly began. He was one of the first pilots to deliver mail by plane and, along with his fellow pilots, helped to create new routes to faraway places. Antoine flew over mountains and deserts, battled winds and storms, and even tried to break aviation records. He also crashed a number of times. From his plane he reflected on life on the earth and in the skies, and this inspired him to write about his experiences. Peter Sís's remarkable biography celebrates the author of The Little Prince, one of the world's most beloved books.

'Sís's handling of the aviator's last flight and disappearance strikes just the right notes of mystery, majesty, and quiet wonder that connect the life and longings of Saint-Exupéry to those of his young, fictional friend. Brilliant ...'
School Library Journal
