You could be excused for thinking that this book is one containing a simple story for young children about a Little Prince. How wrong you would be! This is far from the truth: it is much more. It is a complex story containing lots of ambiguities about a child with golden hair. These are all eruditely discussed before the actual story begins, in a section entitled "How It All Began". "Is The Little Prince a story written for children or is it a meditation intended for adults?" The Art of Living is discussed, along with a system of values, and the train of thought behind them is the unifying element. You are invited to "look at the book, and allow yourself to travel from one image to the next... " It was written and published more than 50 years ago in the USA, and the author was a Frenchman who illustrated the book himself; it was later translated by Kathryn Woods. The Little Prince is still very popular and has now been translated into many languages. Shortly after it was first written, the author died--disappearing together with his plane somewhere over the Mediterranean. This Gift edition contains all the original illustrations, plus some more original drawings that came to light later and have been published here for the first time.--Susan Naylor

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleI found a copy of this audiobook at the library and was so excited to read it that it wasn't until I put it in the CD player in my car that I realized it was an abridged version. At that point it was too late and I just had to listen to it.I really enj...
Antoine De Saint-Exupéry gave us a wonderful and peculiar story. The plot follows an aviator, who has crashed in the dessert! After further research, I learned that the author modeled this on his own experience. Because this text is a fable, I think it would be great to compare it to other classic f...
J'ai lu ce livre trois fois et je ne l'aime toujours pas. Je pense que je devrais l'aimer, mais le petit prince se tue à la fin ! Je ne l'aime pas. Peut-être plus tard.--------------------------------------------I have read this book three times and I still do not like it. I think I should like it, ...
