Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, translated by Michael Morpurgo. Read by Richard E. Grant, with an introduction read by Michael Morpurgo.

If a little fellow comes along, if he laughs, if he has golden hair, and if he never answers questions, then you will know who he is.

He is the Little Prince, the mysterious, innocent and beautiful boy who appears to a pilot stranded in the desert and makes an extraordinary request. He has captured the hearts of millions around the world since his story first appeared in 1943, written down by an aristocratic French aviator who soon after disappeared during a flight across the sea. The Little Prince journeys to our planet from his home among the stars, encountering all sorts of benighted grown-ups along the way, and a fox, who teaches him how to see the important things in life. But the Prince has left behind a flower growing on his star, a rose which is his treasure and his burden, and before long he must return to it. 

Master storyteller Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse, has translated what is for him 'one of the greatest stories ever written' so that more English readers might discover the joy of reading this enchanting fable. The Little Prince is a story for everyone, for children and grown-up children, for kings, geographers and lamp-lighters, even for the very serious and the very wise.

Deeply analytical yet equally entertaining

Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince is an excellent critique of humanity through the eyes of a child. Richard E. Grant’s narration, coupled with the literary choices of Morpurgo in his translation make it a most enjoyable listen!

Pure bliss

My dad used to read this amazing book to me and my sister! I hold it close to my heart. I love to read it to my son even though he's only 8 weeks old, but we love listening to it in the car he finds it so calming!
