Written by Peter Sis

The Pilot and the Little Prince Synopsis

'A fascinating book, THE PILOT AND THE LITTLE PRINCE invites big kids (literal and metaphorical) to take the time... to dig in its pages ... to lose oneself in delicate drawings, dreamlike and peppered with sly winks.' Liberation 'A sumptuous allegory, magnificently drawn, by another poet who has wandered far from his home in order to find his own horizon.' Le Monde

The Pilot and the Little Prince Press Reviews

Internationally acclaimed illustrator, filmmaker, painter, and author Peter Sis is a genius. That wordmay be overused to be almost meaningless, but I have no other explanation for the seemingly endlessdepths of his fertile imagination. -- Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis There is a breathtaking magic in the young Peter Sis. How did that happen is a mystery to me, but it isa fact. Enter his world and see. -- Milos Forman, director of Amadeus and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest A fascinating book, THE PILOT AND THE LITTLE PRINCE invites big kids (literal and metaphorical) to take the time... to dig in its pages ... to lose oneself in delicate drawings, dreamlike and peppered with sly winks. Liberation A sumptuous allegory, magnificently drawn, by another poet who has wandered far from his home in order to find his own horizon. Le Monde Sis's works are less picture books than little miracles of design... A compelling, multilayered visual treat Booklist, Starred Review Sis's handling of the aviator's last flight and disappearance strikes just the right notes of mystery, majesty and quiet wonder. Brilliant bookmaking School Library Journal, Starred Review Extraordinary and wonderful Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review The Pilot and the Little Prince is a thing of beauty for both eye and spirit Brainpickings.org Sis spared no detail in his stunning 48-page picture book biography, which, like its inspiration, can be read on many levels redbookmag.com As always, Sis's illustrations are all just so spot on and exquisitely expressive thechildrenswar.blogspot.co.uk
