The Little Prince  is a… BOOK!
Is it just another book? Maybe…
Definitely a well know one although many might have not read it.

An inexhaustible source of quotations, references, metaphors and memes, too often labelled as a children’s book by those who spout arrogance and banality. A very sweet and touching reading for children, although almost exclusively addressed to adults, which carries a profound moral: childhood is a season we all experience. A season we should remember and savour again, to be able to clearly understand what really is essential in life.

The Little Prince is divided into twenty-seven chapters, with watercolours illustrations by its very own writer. Each chapter tells about an encounter the main character has travelling on different planets. Each one of these bizarre personalities leaves the little prince astonished and bewildered by the strangeness of adulthood, thus why the book ultimately addresses grown-ups.
And it speaks to us with the innocence of children, with their directness, giving us a glimpse of their hope.

Conceived as a children’s fairy tale, The Little Prince was first published in English in 1943 and later in French. It became one of the world’s best-selling books, translated into many languages.

Antoine de Saint-Exupèry is a French nobleman with a passion for aviation. Engaged in an aeroplane campaign in the 1920s, he enlisted in the French Air Force during the outbreak of World War II. Saint-Exupèry left for a mission over the Tyrrhenian Sea on 31 July 1944 and never returned to base, probably shot down by an enemy plane.
