About the book

Chris Riddell's brilliant full-colour illustrated The Little Prince in a sumptuous hardback and jacketed edition. A perfect gift for families, children and all fans of this much-loved favourite classic.

After crash-landing in the Sahara Desert, a lonely pilot encounters a little prince who is visiting Earth from his own planet. Their strange and moving meeting illuminates many of life's universal truths, as he comes to learn what it means to be human from a child who is not.

With the loving, insightful, perplexed-by-grown-ups Little Prince at its heart, readers will not only rediscover characters such as The coquettish Rose, The knowledgeable Fox and The complex Lamplighter, but will find fresh and wonderful creations of these characters by a true master of his art; images that will live in our hearts and minds for generations to come.

Antoine de Saint-Exupry's delightful The Little Prince has been translated into over 180 languages and sold over 80 million copies worldwide.
