The Pilot and the Little Prince: The Life of Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Summary:
A tribute to the life of the creator of “The Little Prince,” tracing his early achievements as a pilot, his efforts to break aviation records, and the experiences that inspired his writing life.

Rating: 2 **

A good book for anyone interested in Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s flying career, but a little too much disjointed detail for most kids.

Hank has a Dream

Hank has a Dream

Summary:
Hank relates to a friend a dream in which he flies to the sea, past the trees, and over the clouds.

Rating: 3 ***

Dudley’s illustrations are really nifty, they look like photographs, and the story is interesting in that one side is reality and the other side is the dream. There’s not much to the story though, it’s a simple dream about flying in a balloon.
