Publisher's Summary

Now an adult himself, the narrator has become a pilot, and, one day, his plane crashes in the Sahara, far from civilization. Here, the narrator is greeted by a young boy whom he refers to as "the little prince". Upon encountering the narrator, the little prince asks him to draw a sheep. The narrator first shows him his old picture of the elephant inside the snake, which, to the narrator's surprise, the prince interprets correctly. After three failed attempts at drawing a sheep, the frustrated narrator simply draws a box, claiming that there is a sheep inside the box. Again, to the narrator's surprise, the prince exclaims that this is exactly the drawing he wanted. The prince has a strange habit of avoiding directly answering any of the narrator's questions. The prince is described as wearing a scarf and having golden hair and a lovable laugh. Over the course of eight days stranded in the desert, while the narrator attempts to repair his plane, the little prince recounts the story of his life.

Perfect

Read in English with a natural French accent. Gently affecting and thoroughly convincing. Highly recommended.

On the one hand a simple children's book. On the other hand a brilliant and beautiful workbif art. Hear this book as you would listen to poetry. Really listen and hear. Don't think or analyze or philosophize; just listen. After you have actually HEARD what is being said, then analyze and synthesize.
