At first glance, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic The Little Prince—with its winsome illustrations of a boy prince and his tiny planet—appears to be a children’s fairy tale. It doesn’t take long, however, to discover that it speaks to readers of all ages. This pocket-sized edition, perfect for teens, features Saint-Exupéry’s original full-color illustrations and the unabridged text, a reader’s guide, and a introduction by Gregory Maguire. Rediscover—or share—the magic! "I’m glad I was asked to be the ambassador for this book. I suspect you may find that something of the starry magic of this story stays with you, as it has with me." — Gregory Maguire "A lovely story…which covers a poetic, yearning philosophy—not the sort of fable that can be tacked down neatly at its four corners but rather reflections on what are real matters of consequence." — New York Times Book Review

No story is more beloved by children and grown-ups alike than this wise, enchanting fable. One day, the author reminisces, when his plane was forced down in the Sahara, a thousand miles from help, he encountered a most extraordinary small person. "If you please, " said the stranger, "draw me a sheep." And thus begins the remarkable history of the Little Prince.Product Description:
The Little Prince describes his journey from planet to planet, each tiny world populated by a single adult. It's a wonderfully inventive sequence, which evokes not only the great fairy tales but also such monuments of postmodern whimsy. The author pokes similar fun at a businessman, a geographer, and a lamplighter, all of whom signify some futile aspect of adult existence.
