Book Description

1 Sep 2011 Collector's Colour Library, Colour Illustrated Edition
"The Collector's Colour Library" takes the favourite illustrated titles of "The Collector's Library" and presents them in full colour. Original colour illustrations are faithfully reproduced, and where illustrations and decorations were originally black and white they have been sensitively coloured by Barbara Frith, one of Britain's most accomplished colourists. "The Little Prince" is a wonderful and remarkable book which will enchant both children and adults alike. It is a strange and wonderful parable for all ages, championing the beauty and wisdom of childhood which fades when one becomes 'a grown up'. This is a specially commissioned new translation by Ros and Chloe Schwarz. St Exupery's original illustrations have had their colours carefully enhanced by Barbara Frith.

About the Author

Antoine de St Exupery, born in Lyon on 29 June 1900, was a French writer and aviator. He is best remembered for his novella 'The Little Prince', and for his books about aviation adventures, Including 'Night Flight' (1931) and 'Wind, Sand and Stars' (1939. In 1921 he began his military service and trained as a pilot. He became one of the pioneers of international postal flight. At the outbreak of the Second World War he joined the French Air Force flying reconnaissance missions until the Armistice with Germany. Following a spell writing in the United States, he joined the Free French Forces. He went on a mission to collect information on German troop movements in the Rhone valley on 31 July 1944 and he was never seen again. His aeroplane disappeared. It was assumed that he was shot down over the Mediterranean Sea. An unidentified body wearing French colours was found several days later and buried in Carqueiranne that September.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharing the story with family 1 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read this book many years ago as a student in the original French and read it again in recent years. I've even read a Freudian take on the story viewed in light of the author's life. However, The Little Prince has its own charm, its own bitter-sweet quality and its own gently rueful humour. I bought the English translation in this edition because I wanted to share it with my grown-up daughter. It should be shared.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
They say you need to read this book at least three times in your life, when you are kid, when you are young adult and when you are old. Everyone can find themselves in this lovely tinny book of the little Prince and his little rose.
