Moral allegory and spiritual autobiography, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the French language. With a timeless charm it tells the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the vagaries of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal odyssey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures.
Letter to a Hostage, which contains certain themes that were to appear in The Little Prince, is Saint-Exupery’s optimistic and humane open letter to a Jewish intellectual hiding in occupied France in 1943.
‘[It is] resonant, beautiful and the kind of book that you should slip into an inside pocket to peek at for the rest of your life’ Guardian on Letter to a Hostage
