Publisher's Summary

A timeless classic. Few stories are as widely read and as universally cherished by children and adults alike as The Little Prince. The perfect audio companion, this Bolinda edition will capture the hearts of listeners of all ages. The book has been translated into more than 160 languages and, to date has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide. It is one of the top 50 best-selling books. It has been adapted into a movie musical by Lerner and Loewe, two different operas, as well as into an animated series. It is often used as a beginner's book for French language students.
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." And the pilot realizes that when life's events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries. He pulls out pencil and paper... And thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed forever the world for its readers.

Critic Reviews

"Humphrey Bower's crisp British accent describes the magical and unlikely friendship between the pilot who was struggling to survive and the boy who was trying to return to his tiny home planet. The pace is measured, and the tone grows more melancholy as the narrator resigns himself to the loss of his extraordinary companion." ( AudioFile)

quirky sweet

A story I totally missed in my 70-year life, but a sweet little tale with a quirky mix of childish fantasy and adult concerns.

A children's story for adults

This book was an enjoyable, sweet read. I laughed out loud a few times at the unexpectedly wry humor. The ending made me cry, but it was bittersweet more than incredibly sad. The narrator had a deep, rich voice; it was like listening to a grandfather telling a bedtime story. He tells the story nice and slow, and I could hear the emotions in it.

My mother and I both enjoyed this story on a long trip back from the doctor during rush hour traffic. I would recommend it to almost anyone looking for a funny, gentle story. However, I do feel compelled to mention that when I was a child, this story would have been much too slow for me. I wouldn't have had the patience for it. It's a family-friendly story, but I wouldn't actually make small children sit through it.

Every Adult should listen to this book

Every adult that thinks that they're super-grown-up should listen to this book, especially those that think that it's a book for kids that they would never ever read.

Meet The King, The Important Man who is more like a mushroom, the sheep in a box, The Vain Rose, The Drunkard, our protagonist and of course The Little Prince, who once he has hold of a question, will never be fobbed off with an unsatisfactory answer or lie.

Arguably a manual on how not to take oneself so seriously. Yet profoundly funny and moving. Lovely.

The Little Prince UNABRIDGED

Everyone should read this book, it reminds you about your inner child, about the simple things in life, the things we see everyday but do not notice, about life and death.

The Little Prince

One of my all time favorite books. I enjoyed the story and the narration was great. The only thing I missed were the illustrations that are so poignant in the written book.

I listen to this audiobook if i am in need to remind myself to smile. It's message will touch many hearts and it certainly inspires me to live with my love, passion, joy, and sincerity. I hope other listeners get as much out of it as i did.
