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)

    "Excellent"

    A simple story should obsess such a mysterious power, which will held you entirely in the world of dessert, stars ,flowers, happy or sad tears, friendship at a long distance between stars, loneliness and love with heavy responsibilities. The little prince said, adults were quite certainly strange. Actually the world belongs to the young, unless those grown-ups sadly forget what they truly are. Why not we start to listen to the story again , rediscovering those rare things from the view of kids?

    "Does the book no justice at all."

    The reading poorly matches the words used in the book; it's almost as if the intention was to paraphrase the charm of the original translation. Sadly, the audio actor uses such a disappointing voice for the little prince and the rose... I had to stop before risking a listen of his choice for the beloved fox.

    "Delightful little book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this audiobook to friends. Both young and old. 😃I read the book in high school French class years ago, and loved it. ❤️It was wonderful to re-experience it as an adult who sometimes takes himself too seriously. 😉

    "Sweet story, Incredible Narration"

    This is a textbook example of a great book that is made even better by exceptional narration. Humphrey Bower hits it out of the park.

    Avid Listener of books at 1-1/2 times the normal speed. Trying to make up for all those boring high school teachers that could not reach me.

    "Wonderful wonderful"

    I loved this narration of a timeless story. I proposed to my wife with this book, asking her to tame me as I gave a red rose. Telling her she was the only rose for me, that was 35 years ago. Read this book listen to it often, remind yourself of the things that are truly important and don't get sidetracked with life and all it's activity.

    "It is a beautiful story."

    It's not too long or short for a child to listen to in the car. As excellent here as reading the book.

    Story
    "Touching tale of innocence!"

    The Little Prince is one childhood book that everyone should revisit. The touching tale of the innocence of childhood, friendship and loss is presented in a way that children can relate to, but there is so much that can be taken and learned as adults from this beautifully written story.

    The audiobook edition of The Little Prince is a well narrated story and really captures the attention of the listener. Although one must research the drawings that are included in the print edition to fully understand the context of the story, the audio version is one not to be missed. In a mere two hours, you can listen to the entire book and be mesmerized by the main characters, the aviator and the Little Prince. The listener can really get a feel for the emotions and the bonds that form between the various characters in the book through Humphrey Bower’s gorgeous voice and impressive ability to make his audience feel empathy and understanding of the message in the book.

    "Narration could be better."

    The narrator's imitation of children's voice is amazing, while the rest is just so-so. Still, it's a great book for both children and adults.
