All grown-ups were once children—although few of them remember it.

“In eighty-four crystalline pages, the Little Prince will learn the meaning of the word ‘ephemeral’ while—thanks to a wise fox—we will edge just a little closer to glimpsing the eternal.” –Stacy Schiff, from the introduction

A pilot crashes his plane in the Sahara Desert. There, far away from civilization, he meets The Little Prince, a strange young boy who left his solitary life on a distant asteroid and traveled to the disenchanted adult world. What unfolds is an unforgettable adventure through the night sky, and a timeless meditation on the power of seeing the world with wonder and clarity.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944), born in Lyons, France, is one of the world’s best loved and widest read writers. His timeless fable, The Little Prince, has sold more than 100 million copies and has been translated into nearly every language. His pilot’s memoir, Wind, Sand and Stars, won the National Book Award and was named the #1 adventure book of all time by Outside magazine and was ranked #3 on National Geographic Adventure’s list of all-time-best exploration books. His other books include Night Flight; Southern Mail; and Airman's Odyssey. A pilot at twenty-six, he was a pioneer of commercial aviation and flew in the Spanish Civil War and World War II. In 1944, while flying a reconnaissance mission for his French air squadron, he disappeared over the Mediterranean. 


Stacy Schiff is the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of several bestselling biographies and historical works including, most recently, The Witches: Salem, 1692.

"A lovely story. .. which covers a poetic, yearning philosophy—not the sort of fable that can be tacked down neatly at its four corners but rather reflections on what are real matters of consequence." — New York Times Book Review
