The Little Prince is an ideal book for children and readers of all ages. Children will adore the lovely fairy tale that the story is beautifully told by Antoine de Saint-Exupery in while adult readers appreciate it for what they truly understand with their hearts.
This unabridged edition of the classic story about the prince from a tiny planet "hardly bigger than a house" integrates the original illustrations into pop-ups, wheels, and flaps. The text is gracefully balanced against the interactive elements as the Prince shares his story: flaps reveal images like the drawing of a sheep that the narrator makes for him, and delicate pop-ups feature characters he's met, like the clownlike lamp lighter. The pleasing visual effects are subtle, but add an appropriate sense of magic. Ages 9 12.
