This is a new translation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince.
Saint-Exupéry was himself an aristocrat, a pilot and a war hero. Here he tells the story of a pilot stranded in the desert who there encounters the Little Prince, a remarkable little fellow from another planet who is also looking for his way back home and to the beloved rose he abandoned there.
Since its publication in 1943, this story has enchanted both adults and children alike, and no wonder. Its gentle humour and profound insights are capable of reminding us of all the things that really matter and of healing hearts and jaded souls, no less.
