In this episode, Saint-Exupéry is in New York City in the early 1940s, trying to convince the American government to engage in military action in World War II.

The authors, Pierre-Roland Saint-Dizier and Cédric Fernandez, delight in exploring the writer side of Saint-Exupéry; he published Flight to Arras in New York in 1942 before drawing on his memories and contemplations to write the now-legendary children’s tale, The Little Prince.

Saint-Exupéry, Le Royaume des étoiles, Author: Pierre-Roland Saint-Dizier, Illustrator: Cédric Fernandez, éditions Glénat, 56 pages, ISBN: 9-782344-012314
