A favorite of mine since middle school. I was thrilled to find it so easily and have it shipped to me after I had looked in many bookstores without finding it. I like keeping several copies handy to give to friends. Read full review

About the author (2001)

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944) was born in Lyons, France. A year after the publication of The Little Prince, Saint-Exupéry disappeared over the Mediterranean while flying a reconnaissance mission for his French air squadron. Best known throughout the world as the author and illustrator of The Little Prince, Saint-Exupéry wrote several other books that also have become classics of world literature.

Richard Howard is the author of eleven books of poetry, including Untitled Subjects, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1970, and most recently, Trappings. He is the translator of more than 150 works from the French and lives in New York City.
