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.
