François Place

François Place is one of France’s best-loved children’s book authors and illustrators. He was born in 1957 in France, and he studied Graphic Art at the École Estienne in Paris. Some of his first published books were non-fiction, but then in 1992, he published his first children’s book, the prize-winning Les Derniers Géants about an intrepid explorer who discovers a forgotten tribe of giants.

Praise for The Last Giants

Place's delicate, painstakingly detailed period paintings play a significant role in conveying his profound message.
