What the Critics Say

"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)

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.
