Product description

Available for the first time in an edition for young adults, Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic story, "The Little Prince, " beloved by readers of all ages, comes to life in a format perfect for teen readers."I'm glad I was asked to be the ambassador for this book. I suspect you may find that something of the starry magic of this story stays with you, as it has with me." -- Gregory Maguire"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"At first glance, Antoine de Saint-Exupery's 1943 classic "The Little Prince"--with its winsome illustrations of a boy prince and his tiny planet--appears to be a children's fairy tale. It doesn't take long, however, to discover that it speaks to readers of all ages. This pocket-sized edition, perfect for teens, features Saint-Exupery's original full-color illustrations and the unabridged text, a reader's guide, and a introduction by Gregory Maguire. Rediscover--or share--the magic!This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 4-5, Stories).
