Saint-Exupéry?s The Little Prince has earned millions of fans worldwide as an imaginative, dreamy study of the meaning of life. How horrible to be a grown-up?they all seem to be needy, lonely, vain, or power-hungry. All the Little Prince cares about is being useful to the flower he?s left behind on his very small planet, with only a few thorns to protect her from the world. Sfar?s comic-book illustrations of the wide-eyed boy prince and disheveled pilot he encounters in the African desert are edgier than the original watercolors...and his style and humor work modern magic. An inspiring gift to longtime fans or newcomers!
Part fable, part fairy tale, part philosophy of life, THE LITTLE PRINCE tells the story of a pilot who crashes his airplane in the Sahara Desert, where he meets the Little Prince, a visitor from another planet. The Little Prince tells the pilot he has been traveling to many distant asteroids to get advice on how to care for his rose, the only flower that grows on his tiny planet. The Little Prince's journey is frustrating until he travels to Earth, where he learns about love, friendship, responsibility, and beauty.
