Publisher's Write-Up

The Little Prince written and illustrated by Antoine de Saint Exupéry translated from the French by Katherine Woods.

A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. "Please," asks the stranger, "draw me a sheep." And the pilot realizes that when life's events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries. He pulls out pencil and paper... and thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed the world forever for its readers.

Few books have been as universally cherished by children and adults alike as The Little Prince. This stunning new translation, together with restored artwork, is the definitive edition of a worldwide classic. It will capture the hearts of readers of all ages.

A pilot who crashed by emergency in the Sahara Dessert meets a peculiar Little Prince from an unknown planet, soon they began a friendship that will last forever. The story began with the Pilot reflecting on his childhood dream to become an artist and how the adults - who surround him when he was just seven years old - persuade him to take another career path, leaving him frustrated.

When his plane crashes in the Sahara, he meets the Little Prince who introduces himself demanding the pilot to draw him a sheep, intrigued by this character and also curious of the outcome; the pilot soon engaged in a friendship with the Little Prince, who begging to share his stories about his tiny planet with three volcanoes and his experiences while travelling to Earth. The Little Prince shares with the pilot fascinating stories, revealing each day a little bit more about his life and his endless love for a not too modest but beautiful flower.

I could not stop reading this book, every chapter is like a teaspoon of everyday life with a message that leaves you reflecting about your own life but in a good way. Antoine De Saint-Exupery wrote this book with a simple language, almost effortless but with a deeply powerful meaning in every sentence; it is not only a book easy to read for children but for all ages.

Despite he claims this book is dedicated for children, he also said this is a book for the child every adult has inside which, I strongly agreed with.
Trust me, if you read this book you will be entertained, fascinated, overwhelmed, you will laugh and above all, you will not stop asking yourself a question while gazing at the stars at night and if you are curious to know the question I am referring to, get yourself a copy of The Little Prince and enjoy a good book that you will not regret buying or borrowing.
