A world wide best-seller, The Little Prince was originally published over seventy years ago but it remains as original, imaginative and entertaining as ever. The Little Prince’s plane crashes as he travels from an asteroid far, far away. On his own planet is his true love; before him is the whole world waiting to be explored. As he travels to six other planets questioning all he sees, the Little Prince leads readers on a magical journey of discovery. A remarkable celebration of the value of questions and the power of wonder, The Little Prince, is a story to treasure.
This is a beautifully bound gift edition of this touching and wise classic. 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...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.
The Little Prince, alone on his planet with its one demanding flower, has imagination and a naive wisdom such as adults, conforming to society's codes, seem to lose. This plea for independence of mind in the form of a touching and intellectually entertaining parable (with poignant colour drawings by the author) is an international classic.
