What is the story behind the Little Prince? Who was Antoine de Saint-Exupéry? Did you know he set off on his maiden flight without his mother’s permission? Have you ever heard of l’Aéropostale? Did you know Saint-Exupéry once crash-landed in the middle of the desert?
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s life was one of meetings, adventures and deep reflection. In the opinion of some, that reflection led to The Little Prince and the unfinished work entitled The Wisdom of the Sands.
