Author(s): Peter Sis
'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
