Synopsis

The Little Prince by Joann Sfar

A stunning and bold graphic adaptation from Antoine de Saint-Exupery's exceptional, iconic and classic children's book Le Petit Prince.A lone pilot stranded in the desert is awoken by a little prince, and they become friends. The prince comes from a tiny nameless planet far away. All that exists on his planet are three volcanoes and a flower. Yet, when the flower became difficult to please, like and understand, the little prince left in search of new friends and places. And only when face to face with the absurdities of the adult world, does he finally realize how special all that he has really is to him.

Reviews

Sfar's art is bright and full of life, simple and occasionally grotesque when Saint-Exupery's allegory calls for it. This adaptation is a fine way to revitalise the magic and wisdom of the little prince. * The Irish Times * The classic story is given a dramatic reinterpretation in this superb graphic novel. Striking a balance between faithfully representing the original story with it's gentle philosophical message, and creating an original narrative is risky - but this captivating version breathes fresh life into a story that many young readers may have missed , and many older ones will want to revisit in this new format. * Daily Mail *
