Review: Le Petit Prince

User Review  - Christina - Goodreads

I read this in French last year, and I found myself enjoying it far more than I thought I would. The themes were thoughtful, and I would recommend this to all ages. I must say I favored the fluid nature of this book in French. 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.
