'The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.'

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features a specially commissioned translation by Ros and Chloe Schwarz, as well as the charming original black and white illustrations by Saint-Exupery himself.

After crash-landing in the Sahara Desert, a pilot encounters a little prince who is visiting Earth from his own planet. Their strange and moving meeting illuminates for the aviator many of life's universal truths, as he comes to learn what it means to be human from a child who is not. Antoine de Saint-Exupery's delightful The Little Prince has been translated into over 180 languages and sold over 80 million copies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Ever since its original publication in French in 1943, Antoine de Saint-Exupery's story has enchanted audiences of all ages . . . The story's wisdom on loneliness - in cities crowded with people - and consumerism - in a world replete with natural joys - remains as resonant as ever -- Samuel Earle * The Guardian *
Of all the books written in French over the past century, Antoine de Saint-Exupery's Le Petit Prince is surely the best loved in the most tongues -- Adam Gopnik * The New Yorker *
Every chapter in this book has a unique lesson; every encounter is an allegory. It is whimsical and magical . . . Saint-Exupery created a masterpiece that has lived in the hearts of adults and children for decades -- Farah Masud * The Daily Star *
