Andrew's Pick

A tower of strength, essential reading at any stage of life. 

In one volume, Antoine de Saint-Exupery establishes himself as the Roald Dahl/Quentin Blake of beautiful melancholy. The illustrations by the author are as identifiable with the book as the text. Curl up under the nearest baobab tree, read this book, and when you're finished, please draw me a sheep and bring it by the bookstore.
