As a child, Antoine dreamed of flying. His dream was realized when he became a pilot, first serving France during World War I, then working as an international mail courier. As he wrote letters to his family describing the foreign countries he visited, he soon discovered that writing contained its own sense of adventure. His stories showed a childlike fascination with the world, culminating with The Little Prince, one of the best-selling books ever published.

"The Little Prince" is one of all-time my favourite books, so to learn a bit more of the author's ("Tonio") history and how his whole life lead to that brief tale before he died at the age of 44 was beautiful, as were the vivid and Chagall-esque illustrations.

In Search of the Little Prince by Bimba Landmann packs more punch from its gorgeous, sprawling illustrations than from its length. It's only a dozen pages or so which is ideal for a children's book, and from the looks of the layout it's trying to be more children's book than biography. There's nothing wrong with that even though I think it would be a little unusual to read this to your 5-year-old. The design is loosely based on its inspirational source, The Little Prince.

This mini-biography of author and pilot Antoine de Saint Exupéry gives a tender overview of the man who enlivened the imagination of the entire world. Contrarily, it's arguable whether In Search of the Little Prince should have included some of the more nuanced and darker elements of his life, children's book or not.
