First published in 1943, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been translated into more than 250 languages, becoming a global phenomenon. The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince’s story. The narrator’s plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive. Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears. The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep. The narrator consents to the strange fellow’s request. They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet. He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets. Often puzzled by the grown-ups’ behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion. Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren’t. Children use their heart to feel what’s really important, not the eyes. Heart-breaking, funny and thought-provoking, it is an enchanting and endlessly wise fable about the human condition and the power of imagination. A book about both childhood and adulthood, it can be read as a parable, a war story, a classic children's fairy-tale, and many more things besides: The Little Prince is a book for everyone; after all, all grown-ups were children once.
A pilot who has crash-landed in the Sahara Desert wakes up the next morning to a strange voice. 'Please ... will you draw me a sheep!' it says. The voice, as he soon finds out, belongs to a little prince who has left his tiny planet to travel the universe. In response to this little man's many curious questions, the pilot begins to draw a number of images and slowly comes to understand the truths about life in all its peculiarity and strangeness. The Little Prince was first published in 1943 and has since been translated into more than 250 languages. A remarkable story told with enduring charm, it soon became one of the most widely read books in the world and continues to delight readers of all ages.

As one of the most translated books in the world, and possibly the most popular children's book, The Little Prince holds a unique place in the world of literature. With guidance from the original watercolors, the story is straightforward. A young traveler visits several planets, including earth. On these planets he meets grownups, who don't make sense, and eventually the author, who has crash-landed in the Sahara desert. Along the way he makes friends and discovers the meaning of love. Throughout are the themes of imagination, loneliness, and remembrance. With clear and succinct prose that hews to the original while avoiding becoming awkward and obscure, after 80 years, this new translation makes the work come alive.
Broken down in the Sahara Desert, a pilot meets an extraordinary Little Prince, travelling across time and space to bring peace to his warring planet. Inua Ellams’ magical retelling of the much loved story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry turns the Little Prince into a descendant of an African race in a parallel galaxy. His journey as a galactic emigrant takes us through solar systems of odd planets with strange beings, addresses climate change and morality, and shows how even a little thing can make a big difference.
The release of the film The Little Prince, adapted from the masterpiece by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and produced by Mark Osborne, offers a publisher the chance to shed new light on this universal work. The delicate stop-motion animation used in the feature film, created by cutting and animating pieces of paper, sets the stage for a poetic re-reading of this timeless classic. Both young and old are able to relate to the story of the little prince and discover for themselves that “the only way to see is with one’s heart.”
Moral allegory and spiritual autobiography, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the French language. With a timeless charm it tells the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the vagaries of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal odyssey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures. Letter to a Hostage, which contains certain themes that were to appear in The Little Prince, is Saint-Exupery's optimistic and humane open letter to a Jewish intellectual hiding in occupied France in 1943.
