LoveReading View on Little Prince

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 Synopsis

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?"

About Antoine De Saint-exupery

French aviator and writer, real life hero who looked at adventure and danger with poet's eyes - sometimes from the viewpoint of a child. Saint-Exupéry's most famous work is The Little Prince (1943), which he also illustrated. It has become one of the classics of children's literature of the 20th century. During World War II Saint-Exupéry served as a pilot. He was shot down on a mission over France in 1944. You might also be interested in The Pilot and the Little Prince by Peter Sis, a remarkable and highly original biography of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
