Published In: United Kingdom, 05 June 1995
Translated by Irene Testot-Ferry. The Little Prince is a classic tale of equal appeal to children and adults. On one level it is the story of an airman's discovery, in the desert, of a small boy from another planet - the Little Prince of the title - and his stories of intergalactic travel, while on the other hand it is a thought-provoking allegory of the human condition. First published in 1943, the year before the author's death in action, this translation contains Saint-Exupery's delightful illustrations.

There's a huge place in my heart for this little world-in-a-book; I read it first when I was wee, again many times since. A review won't do it justice, so I'll quote one of my favorite passages and risk sentimentality:
---
"Nothing is perfect," sighed the fox.
But he came back to his idea.
"My life's very monotonous," he said. "I hunt chickens; men hunt me.
All chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike.

A beautiful little story

This is one of those beautiful children's stories that don't date. My children read it and I have now purchased it for my grand daughter. It is suitable for the 6 to 9 age group.

I can't comment on the difference between the English and French versions (having not read the French), but I enjoyed this book. It's a simple, eloquent story with two layers: the surface, which is a pleasant and possibly macabre tale about a young prince from outer space, and the second layer: an allegory about life itself, the author making several almost self-evident, yet often forgotten profund and idealistic points about human nature.

as much as i love this book i have to say that it is a disgrace to the original version,so many parts of this book have changed over the century it's just not funny anymore, the french version is way better even though its in a different labguage but still the same storyline
