A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. "Please," asks the stranger, "draw me a sheep."

He pulls out pencil and paper ...Thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed the world forever for its readers. Often seen as a symbol of childhood innocence, Antoine de Saint-Exupery's best-selling book The Little Prince is cherished by children and adults alike across the globe.

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.
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)
