A beautiful reimagining of this beloved children''s story, featuring black and white and full-colour illustrations on ever page by Chris Riddell, the 2015-2017 UK Children''s Laureate.

Chris Riddell''s brilliant full-colour illustrated The Little Prince in a sumptuous hardback and jacketed edition. A perfect gift for families, children and all fans of this much-loved favourite classic.

After crash-landing in the Sahara Desert, a lonely pilot encounters a little prince who is visiting Earth from his own planet. Their strange and moving meeting illuminates many of life''s universal truths, as he comes to learn what it means to be human from a child who is not. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry''s delightful The Little Prince has been translated into over 180 languages and sold over 80 million copies worldwide.

With the loving, insightful, perplexed-by-grown-ups Little Prince at its heart, readers will not only rediscover characters such as The coquettish Rose, The knowledgeable Fox and The complex Lamplighter, but will find fresh and wonderful creations of these characters by a true master of his art; images that will live in our hearts and minds for generations to come.

Biographical note

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, born in Lyon 29 June 1900, was a French writer and aviator. In 1921 he began his military service and trained as a pilot, and at the outbreak of the Second World War he joined the French Air Force flying reconnaissance missions. Later, he joined the Free French Forces but while flying a mission in the Rhone valley on 31 July 1944 he disappeared and was never seen again. It was assumed that he was shot down over the Mediterranean. An unidentifiable body wearing French colours was found several days later and buried in Carqueiranne that September.
