|Pages/Publication Date:||91 / 2016|
A pilot, forced to land in the desert, meets a small boy—a young prince—who tells him a strange tale about a tiny planet far away, with three volcanoes and one haughty rose. First published in 1943, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's stunning parable of what it means to love someone, and to let that person go, remains one of the most popular books in the world, and has inspired countless translations and adaptations. This lovely compact edition for all ages includes Saint-Exupéry's own drawings in color and black and white, with the complete text translated by PEN/Ralph Manheim Medal-winning poet and translator Richard Howard.
