About The Little Prince

Richard Howard's translation of the beloved classic—published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's birth—beautifully reflects Saint-Exupéry's unique and gifted style. Howard has excelled in bringing the English text as close as possible to the French, in language, style, and, most important, spirit. The artwork in these editions has been restored to match in detail and in color Saint-Exupéry's original artwork. Harcourt is proud to publish the definitive English-language edition of The Little Prince. It continues to capture the hearts of readers of all ages.
