Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Available for the first time in an edition for young adults, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's classic story, The Little Prince, beloved by readers of all ages, comes to life in a format perfect for teen readers.

"Im 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

At first glance, Antoine de Saint-Exupérys 1943 classic The Little Prince—with its winsome illustrations of a boy prince and his tiny planet—appears to be a childrens fairy tale. It doesnt take long, however, to discover that it speaks to readers of all ages. This pocket-sized edition, perfect for teens, features Saint-Exupérys original full-color illustrations and the unabridged text, a readers guide, and a introduction by Gregory Maguire. Rediscover—or share—the magic!

This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 4-5, Stories).

Having read this book a dozen or so times, not only for myself, but to all of my children, I have but one question. Why haven't you? If you are reading this it may be because you have yet to read what may be the greatest book of all time. I myself own a first edition, which my son begs to be read at bedtime.

The story itself is filled with so many undertones and philosophies for adults that I get something new each time I read it. At the same time though, young children delight in hearing it again and again.

I have heard that James Dean himself was a fan and could quote lines from the book. My personal favorite is from the fox, who told the Little Prince "You risk tears if you let yourself be tamed."

Even if you just buy a good reading copy, you will have done yourself an immense favor. By stepping into the Little Prince's world if only for a bit, you will be a more enlightend person for having done it.
