Description

After his plane crashed in the Sahara Desert the narrator met the “Little Prince”. The prince, as he told the narrator, was a traveler from a tiny far-off planet roughly the size of a house. He had already visited six planets and Earth was his last stop. Little by little the little prince recounts his most exquisite story. Originally published in French in 1943 Saint-Exupéry’s philosophical fable The Little Prince is a unique tale that has equally fascinated both grownups and children. It has sold over 150 million copies in 250 languages.
