International bestseller
Four Starred Review on Amazon

A timeless classic.

A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. 'Please,' asks the stranger, 'draw me a sheep.' And the pilot realises that when life's events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries. He pulls out pencil and paper... And thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed forever the world for its readers. The book has been translated into more than 160 languages and, to date, has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide. It is one of the top fifty bestselling books. It has been adapted into a movie musical by Lerner and Loewe, two different operas, as well as into an animated series.

'Possibly the most beautiful book of the twentieth century, The Little Prince will appeal to the hearts of adults and children alike. It tells the story of a little prince, who falls to earth from a star, and of the airman, stranded in the desert by the crash of his plane, who seeks to understand the prince's secret. The premise is simple and the story simply told, and yet Saint-Exupery creates a tale that is full of poignancy and hope. 'As the little prince journeys the planets around his own home, Asteroid B612, he encounters a variety of individuals: the Conceited Man, the King, the Accountant, the Drunkard, the Geographer and the Lamplighter. Each one becomes a parable of human nature: or rather, the nature of adults. The Little Prince is a story about childhood, mortality (made all the more poignant by the fact that Saint-Exupery died in action in WW2, the year after the book's publication), friendship, love, hope and the magic in our lives that we are at risk of losing as we grow older. 'For a so-called "children's book", this is one that will live with you for the rest of your life.'

'This classic fantasy is told as the recollection of a pilot whose plane crashed in the desert. He was surprised, he tells listeners, then exasperated, then enthralled by the mysterious little prince who arrived to keep him company and persistently requested his help. Humphrey Bower's crisp British accent describes the magical and unlikely friendship between the pilot who was struggling to survive and the boy who was trying to return to his tiny home planet. The pace is measured, and the tone grows more melancholy as the narrator resigns himself to the loss of his extraordinary companion. There are occasional awkward moments when the whimsical drawings so essential to the story are represented by short pauses. For listeners familiar with previous versions, there is a translator's note at the end.'
