A NEW TRANSLATION BY MICHAEL MORPURGO, AUTHOR OF WAR HORSEMeet the Little Prince, a young fellow who hails from a tiny, distant planet.
He loves to watch sunsets and look after his flower, to ask questions and to laugh. And now here he is on Earth, appearing out of nowhere in the middle of the desert, looking for a friend.
The friend he finds is the narrator of this story - a pilot who has crash landed and is in grave danger of dying of thirst. The Little Prince might be just a boy but he can help our pilot. Because he understands the really important things in life - things like flowers, stars, a drink of water or laughing.
Many grown-ups have lost sight of what matters and children have to remember to be tolerant towards them.
But adult or child, very silly or very wise, this story is for you. Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can read a letter from master storyteller and translator of this book Michael Morpurgo!
