Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

This definitive English-language edition of The Little Prince will win the hearts of readers of all ages thanks to Richard Howard’s translation and the original full-color art that has been restored.

The Little Prince is one of the few stories that both kids and adults love and read all the time. When a plane crashes in the Sahara Desert, a little boy asks the pilot to draw a sheep for him. The Little Prince slowly tells us more about himself: He is from a small asteroid, where he lived alone until a rose grew.

But the rose became more demanding, and he didn’t know how he felt about her. As the story continues, it moves from one planet to the next. It is a deep philosophical look at love and the fleeting.
