The beloved classic story about a young prince's travels through space -- a profound tale about loneliness and loss, and love and friendship -- in French.

A pilot crashes in the Sahara Desert and encounters a strange young boy who calls himself the Little Prince. The Little Prince has traveled there from his home on a lonely, distant asteroid with a single rose. The story that follows is a beautiful and at times heartbreaking meditation on human nature.

The Little Prince
is one of the best-selling and most translated books of all time, universally cherished by children and adults alike. In this French edition, the artwork has been restored to match in detail and in color Saint-Exupéry's original artwork.

Review: Le Petit Prince

User Review  - Christina - Goodreads

I read this in French last year, and I found myself enjoying it far more than I thought I would. The themes were thoughtful, and I would recommend this to all ages. I must say I favored the fluid nature of this book in French. Read full review
