Rated 5 out of 5 by from MADE ME CRY! A TRULY FANTASTIC BOOK This is one of my most favourite children's literature book! A must read! Cried so much on this book! The Little Prince is also the reason why I am reading more books. I do read before but not as quite as often now. I'm also very satisfied with this gift edition!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless wisdom written with poetic simplicity. The Little Prince was actually introduced to me by James Dean. It sounds strange, I know, but its true. Years ago, I went through a bit of a James Dean obsession phase. - And it was mentioned, more then once, how he loved this story, and insisted upon reading it to most of his friends. Etched on a sculpture by his memorial tomb is his favorite quote, from this book, "What is essential is invisible to the eyes." Based on this heavy recommendation I had to read it for myself. If you haven't read this book, let it be James Dean's praise of it, and not mine, that truly motivates you to read it, too. - It's more fun that way. Though I was predisposed to love the book long before I read it, it really is a masterpiece. Written for children yet laced with philosophical profoundness for sages...
