Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s tender and magical classic fable, adapted for picture book readers for the very first time!

Please – draw me a sheep.

I blinked.

The voice belonged to a charming little prince.

The characters of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic tale have captured the hearts of generations of readers. Meet the pilot stranded in the desert. Meet the Little Prince who tends his beautiful rose on a planet of his own. Follow him as he embarks on a strange and wonderful journey to puzzling new planets and finally to Earth, where he discovers the nature of love.

Review by Stacey

The Little Prince is an adapted version for little children of the full book written by the author Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Now, I have never read the book, to be honest, I’d never heard of it until this adapted version arrived and I looked it up.

If you have read the original this story may make more sense to you. To me, I found it confusing in places and hard to follow/understand. It kind of jumps from one scenario to another. I also struggled to work out what the meaning behind everything was, though looking at the original it seems to be a story of The grass isn’t always greener/enjoying what you already have.

I did love the full-page, colourful illustrations and young children that are new readers will be able to read this book as there isn’t a great deal of text and it is written in short paragraphs.

The Little Prince is a decent, quick read. I’m sure it will be magical and enchanting to a lot of readers, but for me not fully understanding what was happening put a dampener on my enjoyment, which is a shame as it looks so good too.
