Review: The Little Prince #1 THE PLANET OF WIND by Delphine Dubos


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

The New Adventures
Based on the Masterpiece by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The Little Prince has had a peaceful life on Asteroid B612 with his friends Rose and Fox, dreaming under the starry sky. But now star systems are vanishing one by one. An old enemy, the Snake, is bent on destroying the universe . . . and it will take all of the Little Prince's imagination and Fox's determination to stand against the Snake and his shadowy monster servants.
The Planet of Wind
The wind itself provides all the energy the Eolians need for warming their planet, which is ever in danger of being covered by ice. But each day the winds they rely on grow weaker—stolen by pirates, and no one knows how. Can the Little Prince and Fox discover the real root of the problem and save a whole planet from disappearing into darkness?
The timeless characters created by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in his classic novel meet a new generation of readers in this original series, overseen by the author's estate. The Little Prince's all-new journeys carry forward the spirit of friendship and imagination in a universe full of daring adventure!
©2012 LPPM. An animated series based on the novel Le Petit Prince of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Developed for television by Matthieu Delaporte, Alexandre de la Patellière and Bertrand Gatignol. Directed by Pierre-Alain Chartier.

MY TAKE:

I haven't read The Little Prince in years, but I remember being fond of the story.

The Little Prince is a continuation of sorts of the story. The Little Prince and the Fox are now hunting the Snake as it goes from planet to planet manipulating its inhabitants to destroy their planet. In this first issue, The Little Prince and Fox travel to the Planet of the Wind. Something is stealing the winds and causing ice to cover more of the planet. They must learn who it is before the planet is destroyed.

The book is quite short, so the resolution comes rather quickly and the plot isn't too complicated. As this book is meant for kids, it's perfect. Adults, however, might not find this as satisfying. It's still entertaining, though.

The coloring is gorgeous, and the drawings are very pretty. The illustrations are done anime-style so if you like that style, you will love this.

Thanks to NetGalley and Graphic Universe for the e-ARC. Publication date of The Little Prince #1 THE PLANET OF WIND is on October 1, 2012.
