The Little Prince
Translated by Irene Testot-Ferry.
The Little Prince is a classic tale of equal appeal to children and adults. On one level it is the story of an airman's discovery, in the desert, of a small boy from another planet - the Little Prince of the title - and his stories of intergalactic travel, while on the other hand it is a thought-provoking allegory of the human condition.
First published in 1943, the year before the author's death in action, this translation contains Saint-Exupery's delightful illustrations.

I am 24, not really a kid, at least by my job status and social responsibilities, at least how my parents and family members "grown ups" look at me.So, when I received this book as a gift it first seemed as a story for kids before bed-time, the funny part is that it still woke up a curious part in me to find out what is written inside. Woke up parts in me that were hidden by the ordinary busy life, forgot what it seemed to just imagine things, be present, curious and eager to learn new stuff, to love the simple things and never use the sentence " I have no time " because right now to me it seems that I got everything except time for myself, time to explore, learn and be passionate about something, something which looks simple and not valuable in the grown up world.
I would recommend this book to everyone. As it helped me realize the path that I'm going I'm pretty sure it'll help somebody else, remember how it was being a kid with no responsibilities and a whole new world out there waiting to be found.
Absolutely loved it, I wanna thank my aunt from whom I received this. Might be a life changer.
