First published in 1943, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery has been translated into more than 250 languages, becoming a global phenomenon. The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince's story.

The narrator's plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive.

Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears.

The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep.

The narrator consents to the strange fellow's request.

They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet.

He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets.

Often puzzled by the grown-ups' behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion.

Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren't.

Children use their heart to feel what's really important, not the eyes. Heart-breaking, funny and thought-provoking, it is an enchanting and endlessly wise fable about the human condition and the power of imagination.

A book about both childhood and adulthood, it can be read as a parable, a war story, a classic children's fairy-tale, and many more things besides: The Little Prince is a book for everyone; after all, all grown-ups were children once.
