Synopsis

"The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart."

After crash-landing in the Sahara Desert, a pilot encounters a little prince who is visiting Earth from his own planet. Their strange and moving meeting illuminates for the aviator many of life's universal truths, as he comes to learn what it means to be human from a child who is not.

Ros Schwartz's translation is beautifully judged
Financial Times
The Little Prince moves from asteroid to desert, from fable and comedy to enigmatic tragedy, in order to make one recurrent point: You can't love roses. You can only love a rose
