As one of the most translated books in the world, and possibly the most popular children's book, The Little Prince holds a unique place in the world of literature. With guidance from the original watercolors, the story is straightforward. A young traveler visits several planets, including earth. On these planets he meets grownups, who don't make sense, and eventually the author, who has crash-landed in the Sahara desert. Along the way he makes friends and discovers the meaning of love. Throughout are the themes of imagination, loneliness, and remembrance. With clear and succinct prose that hews to the original while avoiding becoming awkward and obscure, after 80 years, this new translation makes the work come alive.
