The Conference of the Birds (2011)
language
English
4.24 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This is my first experience with the Persian story/poem of abandoning pre-conceptions and leisure to go through trials to find answers within yourself. The story is much abbreviated and while the tale is fairly common, it is a story I like hearing so I may seek out a longer adapt...

review 1: The New York Times were right to award the Pilot and the Little Prince as one of the best illustrated books in 2014. So much poetry in the drawings of Peter Sis - they both tell the story of Exupery's life and show us how he became the person who could write The Little Prince. Th...

review 1: Tuhle knížku kreslil v době, kdy jsem se za ním v New Yorku zastavil. Žádná knížka nedokáže reprodukovat ty nádherný velký ilustrace, které tam tehdy vznikaly. Ale protože naprostá většina čtenářů do ateliérů podobně šikovných lidí jaktěživo nevkročí, rád jim prozrazuji, že i tak...

review 1: С тази книжка се сблъсках случайно в едно кафене, докато си чаках кафето. Улови ме с прекрасните корици, задържа ме с очарователните илюстрации, спечели ме окончателно с посланията- в общи линии, накара ме изцяло да забравя за какво бях дошла.Единственото ми разочарование е, че ...
El piloto y el principito (2014)
language
English

review 1: This is quite a well done biography, but has such a very limited appeal. I just don't see many children gravitating towards it or caring much about who Saint-Exupery was. (I could be wrong, perhaps biased by my own indifference to the Little Prince.) Still, I learned a lot, for ...

review 1: Very well done, this children's book tells the story of de Saint Exupery's life. The art work is hypnotic and fantastical and the layout is also very effective, with the basic story line of his life in regular text and additional information added as an element of the pictures f...

review 1: The biography in picture book form about Antoine de Saint-Exupery is titled: The Pilot and the Little Prince. Fans of Saint-Exupery will revel in this new book written by one of America's prominent award-winning authors. The Illustrations and text both by Peter Sis take us into t...
