The Little Prince
Moral allegory and spiritual autobiography, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the French language. With a timeless charm it tells the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the vagaries of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal odyssey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures.
‘A pilot who has crash-landed in the Sahara Desert wakes up the next morning to a strange voice. ‘Please … will you draw me a sheep!’ it says. The voice, as he soon finds out, belongs to a little prince who has left his tiny planet to travel the universe. In response to this little man’s many curious questions, the pilot begins to draw a number of images and slowly comes to understand the truths about life in all its peculiarity and strangeness.
The Little Prince was first published in 1943 and has since been translated into more than 250 languages. A remarkable story told with enduring charm, it soon became one of the most widely read books in the world and continues to delight readers of all ages.
