The Little Prince is a book that has been translated into English from the French language. The author, Antoine de Saint-ExupÃ©ry, was a pilot. Similarly to the pilot in his story, while flying a mission during World War II, Antoine de Saint-ExupÃ©ryÂ’s plane was shot down, and it disappeared somewhere over the Mediterranean.
The Little Prince is an honest and beautiful story about loneliness, friendship, sadness, and love. The prince is a small boy from a tiny planet (an asteroid to be precise), who travels the universe, planet-to-planet, seeking wisdom. On his journey, he discovers the unpredictable nature of adults. Â“All grown-ups were once childrenÂ… but only a few of them remember it.Â”
