The Little Prince: a classic children’s book

We were delighted to see Le Petit Prince listed as a classic children’s book in Les 1001 livres d’enfants qu’il faut avoir lu pour grandir (1001 children’s books to read growing up). Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s tale features alongside such French children’s classics as Max et les Maximonstres, Les Trois Brigands or Le Prince de Motordu.
The story of the Little Prince is described as one that touches the heart of readers and lingers long in the memory. Even if you are a grown-up, it is never too late to read The Little Prince – quite the opposite, in fact.Les 1001 livres d’enfants qu’il faut avoir lu pour grandir – Flammarion
