About The Little Prince
Translated into 270 languages and dialects, The Little Prince has become the best-known and most translated work of French literature around the world. Telling the imaginative story of a little prince from another planet, his pet fox, and his love for one red rose, the book encourages us to rediscover the complexity, beauty and fragility of the world we take for granted.
