The Little Prince
‘The Little Prince’ is the most translated book in the French language. Both moral fable and spiritual autobiography, it is the story of a little boy who lives alone on a planet not much bigger than himself, who leaves it to travel round the universe.
A beautiful clothbound hardback gift edition of one of the world’s most beloved stories.
The timeless, enchanting story of the little prince who lives on a tiny planet with three volcanoes and a haughty flower, which he must protect from the baobabs, the bad seeds. The rulers of the other planets he visits all suffer from the cares and stupidities of the everyday world. Only the little prince, through his clear, loving eyes, knows that the simplest of things can be of the utmost importance.
Translated by T. V. F. Cuffe, and with the original illustrations, the story is complete and unabridged.
