You could be excused for thinking that this book is one containing a simple story for ... more

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?"  The Art of Living is discussed, along
with a system of values, and the train of thought
behind them is the unifying element. You are
invited to "look at the book, and allow yourself
to travel from one image to the next... " It was
written and published more than 50 years ago in
the USA, and the author was a Frenchman who
illustrated the book himself; it was later
translated by Kathryn Woods. The Little Prince is
still very popular and has now been translated
into many languages. Shortly after it was first
written, the author died--disappearing together
with his plane somewhere over the Mediterranean.
This Gift edition contains all the original
illustrations, plus some more original drawings
that came to light later and have been published
here for the first time.--Susan Naylor

The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

HardCover. Pub Date :2013-04-16 Pages: 112 Language: English Publisher: Houghton Mifflin ... more

Harcourt Saint-Exupry's The Little Prince has
earned millions of fans worldwide as an
imaginative. dreamy study of the meaning of life.
How horrible to be a grown-up-they all seem to be
needy. lonely. vain. or power-hungry. All the
Little Prince cares about is being useful to the
flower he's left behind on his very small planet.
with only a few thorns to protect her from the
world. Sfar's comic-book illustrations of the
wide-eyed boy prince and disheveled pilot he
encounters in the African desert are edgier than
the original watercolors ... and his style and
humor work modern magic. An inspiring gift to
longtime fans or newcomers!

Innocence and imagination-tragedy and joy.

AdvantagesCan engender wonderful thoughts and feelings.

DisadvantagesCan also inspire great sadness: though this is not necessarily a disadvantage!

"The little prince is, paradoxically, an extremely famous book which many people reading this will not have heard of. It is a delightful story, which was originally written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery in 1943. He did not live to see it translated into English and published here the following year, for he died in 1944. Yet despite this, he is a national figure in France. He wrote many other books and essays, and during the occupation of France he was ..." Read review

"Only children know what they are looking for"

AdvantagesRemembering the truth

DisadvantagesAdults have forgotten the truth

"...stoopid Tazzy ramblings and onto the good stuff...the review, I have decided to re-write my first ever review, I really did not do the book any justice the first time round, so here goes! ~Gather round children, you might learn something new~ This is undoubtedly the most famous piece of work by the French author Antoine de Saint-Exupery, and although a children's novel has a lot of underlying, very adult, messages about perception, love, relationships ..."

Learning from children.....

AdvantagesCharming, and full of insight

DisadvantagesYou reach the end too quickly

"...a child. He never lost the sense of wonder that accompanies being either of those. A child, having failed to draw boa constrictors in a way the conveys the sheer horror of such creatures to an adult…submits to the real world and grows up. He becomes a pilot and, because “something broke” in his engine finds himself stranded in the Sahara, thousands of miles from anywhere. “So you can imagine my surprise at sunrise when ..."

My Bible

AdvantagesSimple yet profoundly deep

DisadvantagesNone

"You read the story once... it seems different, yet childish and shallow at the same time. Read it the second time... you find it's got meaning... Read it the third time... and you will realize the essence of your rat-race filled life. Or do you have to be a lab rat just like society tells you to be? This is one book (the only book)... which I hand out to my loved ones. This is a book which can change the heart of the toughest, meanest ..." Read review

The true meaning of life...

AdvantagesFor all ages

Disadvantagesnone

"...discover. I've grown with this book, the first time I read it I was only 7 years old and since then this book was always surprising me every time I read it. The little prince is like the child we have inside us and we forget most of the times... He doesn't understand why adults have certain attitudes and mostly why some (material) things are so important to them like have lots of money, spend all the time working, etc., instead of giving importance ..."
