This parable tells the story of an air pilot who meets a Little Prince when he has to make a forced landing in the
Sahara Desert. The Little Prince tells him wise and enchanted stories.

This is one of those delightful little books that, although it seems simple enough, really makes you think. The wandering adventure of the Little Prince is sweet and touching and reminds readers that the most important things are those that can't necessarily be seen.

There’s not much one can say about it without giving away large parts of the plot; suffice to say, it’s a book that everyone should experience for themselves, whether they read it to a small child (who will undoubtedly love it), or reading it for their own enjoyment.
