Publisher's Summary

A timeless classic. Few stories are as widely read and as universally cherished by children and adults alike as The Little Prince. The perfect audio companion, this Bolinda edition will capture the hearts of listeners of all ages.

The book has been translated into more than 160 languages and, to date has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide. It is one of the top 50 best-selling books. It has been adapted into a movie musical by Lerner and Loewe, two different operas, as well as into an animated series. It is often used as a beginner's book for French language students.

A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. "Please," asks the stranger, "draw me a sheep." And the pilot realizes that when life's events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries. He pulls out pencil and paper... And thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed forever the world for its readers.

(P)2008 Bolinda Publishing

What the Critics Say

"Humphrey Bower's crisp British accent describes the magical and unlikely friendship between the pilot who was struggling to survive and the boy who was trying to return to his tiny home planet. The pace is measured, and the tone grows more melancholy as the narrator resigns himself to the loss of his extraordinary companion." (AudioFile)

    I love literature, but especially children's lit and the Victorian novel. I'm also trying to love American literature (one novel at a time).

    Story
    "Witty & Wonderful, but Google the illustrations"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommended this book to several friends. It's a light, short story that at once, doesn't take itself too seriously, but also makes you think about big concepts like mortality, morality, what it means to be loved, etc.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Little Prince?

    The introduction/first chapter is one of my favorites. It's very post-modern and makes you chuckle.


    What about Humphrey Bower’s performance did you like?

    His voice for the title character was great. I also like the pace of his voice. It was very intentional where he decided to pause or speak more quickly, etc.

    "Reliving childhood enchantment with this story."

    There are amazing insights on how we should be making those things that are most important to us the focus of our attention. I wait with building anticipation another translation of the story into a movie format.

    "A timeless read"

    I love this book. It may be a childs book but it reminds you of the importance of curiosity and imagination that this world is beautiful and that the important things in life are not what you can always see.

    "An enchanting tale"

    An inspiring, profound & timeless story that provokes thought and emotions and reminds us of our humanity
    As an audiobook you loose the magnificence of its illustrations so a hard copy is also essential.
