More About the Author

Writer and aviator, Antoine Jean-Baptiste Marie Roger de Saint-Exupéry was born on 29 June, 1900 in Lyon, France.

Saint-Exupéry studied architecture at the Ecole de Beaux-Arts. In 1921, he began his military service with the light cavalry, and trained as a pilot in Strasbourg. A year later he obtained his license and was offered transfer to the airforce.

Due to objections from the family of his fiancée, Saint-Exupéry instead took an office job in Paris. His engagement to Leveque de Vilmorin was not to last, and for the next few years he had a series of unsuccessful jobs.

By 1926, Saint-Exupéry resumed his love for flying, and he became one of the pioneers of international postal flight. Saint-Exupéry's career as an aviator was flourishing and by 1929, he became director of Cape Juby airfield in Morocco, then moved to South America being appointed director of the Aeroposta Argentina Company.

In the same year, he wrote his first book, Southern Mail. His first major work, Night Flight was published in 1931.

On December 30, 1945, Saint-Exupéry and his navigator, André Prévot, embarked on a record-breaking attempt to fly from Paris to Saigon. Nineteen and a half hours into the flight, their plane crashed in the Sahara desert. Both survived the crash but spent three days battling dehydration, limited food and hallucinations. On the fourth day, they were rescued by a camel-riding Bedouin. In part, this experience was the inspiration for The Little Prince, which begins with a pilot being marooned in the desert.

Saint-Exupéry continued to fly until World War II, during which he took self-imposed exile. He retreated to New York and stayed in the village of Asharoken, Long Island where he spent the summer and autumn writing The Little Prince. The manuscript was completed by October 1942.

On 31 July 1944, a year after his book was published, Saint-Exupéry disappeared over the Mediterranean while flying a reconnaissance mission for his French air squadron, the Armée de l'Air.

Este libro es demasiado bueno, lástima que a los adultos nos cuesta entenderlo. Yo lo recomiendo a toda la gente, de cualquier edad, de cualquier país, para regalar y regalarse; leerlo una y otra vez. Vale la pena.

No drawings. Sin dibujos. 9 Jan 2011
By Enrique - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This edition of The Little Prince in Spanish has no the drawings that are essential to understand and enjoy the text. It needs a warning alerting to possible buyers about that.

Esta edición de El Principito en español carece de los dibujos que son esenciales para comprender y disfrutar la obra. Debería advertirse a los posibles compradores acerca de tan importante omisión.

Obra Maestra que Requiere de Ilustraciones 5 April 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
De acuerdo a otros lectores esta versión de El Principito no contiene las necesarias ilustraciones creadas por autor Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, de ser así esta versión de Amazón no tendrá ningún sentido para el lector.
Warning, this book lacks the required illustrations created by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, if such is the case, this Amazon version must be avoided. I will make no sense without the illustrations.

Sin imágenes 16 Jan 2011
By Efrén Herrera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Esta versión del principito no está ilustrada, y eso la vuelve pésima. No tiene sentido leer el principito sin sus imágenes características. Pésima compra.

Ideal para chicos y grandes!! 12 Jun 2001
By Xochitl Quintero - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Esta fabúla es fácil de leer para pequeños y grandes, y con una de las mejores enseñanzas. La leí cuando tenía 8 años y ahora 20 años después sigue siendo una de mis historias favoritas. La prosa de esta historia es refrescante. El pricipito se convertirá en una persona real, que te llevará a conocer gente y lugares, pero sobre todo te enseñará una de las más importantes lecciones en la vida. Esta lectura la recomiendo a esas personas como yo que les gusta soñar y aprender. Es todo un auto-examen de personalidad. Que lo disfruten

Terrible cropping & formatting 8 Jun 2011
By D. Hudson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This specific translation or just the version from this seller is or should be a publisher reject. I HAVE purchased publishing rejects before to save money on textbooks in college. I was not expecting to get a REJECT and am very disappointed with this. Be advised - shop elsewhere & buy a different spanish language version. The main problem with this version is that the book was not properly "Cut" and so many of the illustrations are chopped off. Also the text is printed too big and runs into the lines above and below a little.
