All in French!!!!

I purposely paid attention to the description of this book and the language mentioned was “English”. When I received the book it was all in French. Disappointed!

A Classically Charming Story!

I was introduced to this book a while back and fell in love with the story and how it was written! It's story for all ages! A charming book to have in your library!

amazing!

perfect for all ages.

A remarkable classic book you should read!

The Little Prince is subtly beautiful, a poetic legend by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. “What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.” “But on your tiny planet, my little prince, all you need do is move your chair a few steps. You can see the day end and the twilight falling whenever you like..” “One day," you said to me, "I saw the sunset forty-four times!” “And a little later you added: "You know-- one loves the sunset, when one is so sad...” How amazing it is! The expressive writing carries both weight and sincerity. The subtle allegories make the reader realize the importance of living life to the fullest extent. “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye", The writing and storytelling was some of the best I’ve read in a children’s book in a long time and one of the books I remember from my childhood that I am still learning invaluable life lessons from. Such important lessons of great wisdom and knowledge in such a tiny book, from such a little prince. The Little Prince is one childhood book that everyone should recurring.

Beautiful story

The story and artwork is amazing. I got this to read to my toddler and I had thought it would have a few more pictures, so that was a disappointment, but it was worth it still. A story we both will cherish for years to come.

J'aime!

This book isn't only for children, adults need to read this. It's perfect for practicing your french and the quotes are beautiful.

Lerning German

This book is a great book for someone beginning their journey to learn German. It's simple with a great story behind it. Very recommended

This book is a life-long friend -- something new everytime!

My mom bought me this book when I was about 10 years old. I liked the pictures and the story captured my imagination. It seemed special, especially since my mom gave it to me. I read it again when I was about 16 and was blown away. I cried and cried. The insights I had gained between 10 and 16, I discovered, sat in the story, like little sparkling jewels half buried in sand.I read it again when I was about 22. Again, the depth of this little book surprised me, and again I was in tears. The last time I read it, I was about 25 and felt no less amazement than before at the spiraling depths of this simple story. (This book always makes me cry.)This is a book that grows with you. The story is enchanting and contains within its pages so many precious lessons, like little secrets -- keys to life -- revealed to the reader in stages, as the heart and mind grows and opens enough to perceive them. This book is a pure treasure, and I recommend it for everyone, young and old. I look forward to reading it again... and again... and again.

Timeless in any language

The Little Prince is timeless in any language and this particular translation managed to keep the beauty of St. Exupery's words and the little prince's charm.
