About this title

Synopsis:

The little prince is a poetic tale that comes accompanied by illustrations made with watercolors by Saint-Exupéry himself. In it, a pilot is lost in the Sahara desert after his plane suffered a breakdown, but to his surprise, it is there that he meets a little prince from another planet. History has a philosophical theme, which includes social criticisms directed at the "strangeness" with which adults see things. These criticisms of "important" things and the world of adults are appearing in the book throughout the narrative. It includes a brief biography of the author.

About the Author:

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944) was a French aviator and author. He had a passion for adventure and was one of the pioneers of international postal flight in the days when aircraft had few instruments. He flew routes across Spain into Africa and also flew in Brazil and Argentina for a time. He survived a 1935 crash in the Sahara, an experience he made reference to in his fable, The Little Prince, which begins with a pilot being marooned in the desert. At the outbreak of World War II, he joined the French Air Force, but with Germany's occupation of France, he relocated to the U.S. and Canada, where he spent the majority of his time writing. Toward the end of World War II, he joined the Free French Forces and fought with the Allies despite being older than most men in the squadron. He disappeared on a reconnaissance flight over the Mediterranean in July 1944.
