One of my most cherished books. It could be read as a children's book but it's words hold such a deeper meaning if you're looking for one.
Either way I would suggest everyone reads this amazing book at least once.

Editorial reviews

French fantasy at its memorable best in this moving story of the little prince from the tiny planet with the threatening baobab seeds, the three volcanoes and the vain and difficult rose with whom he falls in love. (6-14 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
