The Little Prince

The Little Prince

ISBN 0156012073

An aviator whose plane is forced down in the Sahara Desert encounters a little prince from a small planet, who relates his adventures in seeking the secret of what is important in life. It's written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery and dedicated to Leon Werth, when he was a little boy. From the forward: "I ask children to forgive me for dedicating this book to a grown-p. I have a serious excuse: this grown-up is the best friend I have in the world. I have another excuse: this grown-up can understand everything, even books for children. I have a third excuse: he lives in France where he is hungry and cold. He needs to be comforted. If all these excuses are not enough, then I want to dedicate this book to the child whom this grown-up once was. All grown-ups were children first. (But few of them remember it.) So I correct my dedication: To Leon Werth, when he was a little boy."
