The Little Prince

9780563496182: The Little Prince

The Little Prince recounts the relationship between an adult and a child. The adult is an aviator who has crash landed in the Sahara desert. The child is a golden-haired prince who has arrived on Earth after taking a circuitous route from his home on a distant asteroid. The prince’s tales of sheep and baobab trees and roses and the inhabitants of miniscule planets reveal many truths about the absurdness of the adult world. Caroline Gourmand’s beautiful new illustrations enhance a text which oscillates between narrative and dialogue, and between the language of an adult and the language of a child. It is truly unfortunate that we can never know how Antoine de Saint Exupéry would have wanted his book to be interpreted, but he has graciously bequeathed us with the simplest of means to reflect on life, love and mortality. From 8 years old and upward.

About the Author:

ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPÉRY, the "Winged Poet," was born in Lyon, France, in 1900. He took his first flight at the age of eleven, and became a pilot at twenty-six. He was a pioneer of commercial aviation and flew in the Spanish Civil War and World War II. His writings include The Little Prince, Wind, Sand and Stars, Night Flight, Southern Mail, and Airman's Odyssey. In 1944, while serving with a French air squadron, he disappeared during a flight over the Mediterranean.

From AudioFile:

At first, Richard Gere's pause-laden, melancholic narration seems affected, but as this fable of childhood wonder and adult folly unfolds, the sad, quiet tone feels entirely appropriate. As the Little Prince, guilelessly portrayed by The Sixth Sense's Haley Joel Osment, leaves his tiny planet to journey across the universe, he encounters characters who embody greed and futility, and finally a fox who, in a brief but standout performance by Adam Frost, asks to be tamed. Gentle, contemplative music underscores the story, and by the end, the Little Prince has learned that the weightiest matters in life--bonds of friendship and responsibility--are the most intangible. Saint-Exupéry's pilot has been changed irrevocably by his encounter with the Little Prince; listeners will doubtless feel the same way.
