The Little Prince
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
(UK: Egmont, @EgmontUK, 2004; USA: Mariner Books, @HMHbooks, 2000)

A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. ‘Please,’ asks the stranger, ‘draw me a sheep.’ And the pilot realises that when life’s events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries. He pulls out pencil and paper …

Thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed the world forever for its readers.
