The Lovereading4Kids comment
December 2010 Guest Editor Sally Grindley:
"What is it with princes?! This Little Prince has come from a different planet, in a quite extraordinary short story with multiple themes, symbols and motifs. I was introduced to this book at school, and was delighted to find that my sons also studied it. The Little Prince is a wanderer who never stops asking questions and seeking truths. He represents the open-mindedness of children in a world where adults lack imagination and have lost the ability to engage with nature and spirituality. The story is populated with memorable characters, and with every new reading further insights and ideas unfold."
March 2010 Guest Editor Michael Foreman:
"The Little Prince is a beautiful, poetice marriage of word and image. A singular vision, timeless and universal. I love the ease with which we are transported to faraway lands and planets. I borrowed the image of the little man standing on a star in Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish. Sorry..."

Little Prince by Antoine De Saint-exupery
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?"
