The Little Prince

TitleThe Little Prince
AuthorJoann Sfar
Call NumberPN 6747 .S48 P4813 2010
Location1st Floor Graphic Novel
Book ReviewI've adored the story of The Little Prince since reading the one by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in high school French class. This graphic novel retelling by Joann Sfar is just as charming! It took me a few panels to get used to the art style--the little prince himself has very wide, football-shaped, disarming eyes--but as I read more, the surrealness of the art really enhanced the dreamy quality of the story.
