The Little Prince

( 51 )

Overview

The Little Prince describes his journey from planet to planet, each tiny world populated by a single adult. It's a wonderfully inventive sequence, which evokes not only the great fairy tales but also such monuments of postmodern whimsy.

The author pokes similar fun at a businessman, a geographer, and a lamplighter, all of whom signify some futile aspect of adult existence.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Young Osment (The Sixth Sense; Pay It Forward) again proves his mettle as an actor, giving voice to the Little Prince in this crisp, full-cast production of the literary classic. He approaches the role with a gentleness and sensitivity that touches the heart and never sounds maudlin. As the pilot whose plane has crashed in the Sahara, Gere plays it low-key, creating a perfect partner for Osment's interplanetary-traveling, wise-beyond-his-years prince. Gere expresses just the right mix of amusement and bewilderment as the prince interrupts the pilot's efforts to repair his plane with a request that he draw a sheep. The adept performances capture the timeless nature of Saint-Exup ry's fable about how a child sees the important things in life much more clearly than many adults do. All ages. (Dec.) FYI: Last year marked the 100th anniversary of Saint-Exup ry's birth. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Those of us concerned with quality preschool literature long for the demise of inappropriate books repackaged into board books. With the publication of four slip-cased board books based on the classic allegory The Little Prince (Friends of the Little Prince, Counting With the Little Prince, A Day With the Little Prince, and I Am the Little Prince/Je Suis Le Petit Prince), one hopes the end is near. On the surface, I Am the Little Prince seems to employ good board book design elements: brief text printed on nursery-pastel backgrounds, watercolor illustrations on contrasting white backgrounds. So far so good. Closer examination reveals that some of the art retains it original clarity while others parts are poorly reproduced. Besides murky illustrations, the bilingual text and art don't always work together. On one page the text reads: "I live on a small planet./J'habite sur petite planete." The accompanying illustration shows the Little Prince standing on his lumpy planet, sweeping out the fenced-in volcano. The text makes no mention of the Little Prince's actions. Children sharing this book would wonder, "What is he doing?" For this age group, illustrations should amplify the story, not go off in another direction. This is what happens when books for older children are reformatted into board books with no regard to the needs and interests of toddlers. 2003, Harcourt Red Wagon, Ages 1 to 3.

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-Actors Richard Gere and Haley Joel Osment read Antoine de Saint-Exupery's book with the assistance of several other actors and actresses. A pilot stranded in the desert awakens one morning to see, standing before him, a most extraordinary little fellow, who teaches him the secret of what is really important in life. Gere reads the part of the Pilot, and Osment takes the part of the Little Prince. The reading by all the participants is accomplished with great skill and feeling. Piano and strings provide very lovely background music composed by Alexandre Stankevicius. This abridged recording of the classic book should be welcome in most library collections.-Beverly Bixler, San Antonio Public Library, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
From The Critics
Richard Gere is the principle narrator in this superbly produced CD format version of Antoine de SaintEXupery's classic children's story The Little Prince. This fifty minute production is a technically flawless audio version of a pilot stranded in the desert and wakening one morning to see before him a little fellow who captures the hearts and imaginations of all who read (and now hear) this remarkable modern fable. Haley Joel Osment gives voice to the Little Prince, while Marina Orsini, Adam Frost, Richard Allen, Dave Walsh, Ara Y. Kentenjian, Patrick Selitz, and Mickey Kessler lend their talents to this multicast production, with music by AleXxandre Stankevicius. The Little Prince is highly entertaining, enthusiastically recommended, and a "must" for school and community library audiobook CD collections.

    Poor quality ebook

    The story is great, but the famous illustrations do not appear in the ebook. There are placeholders, but a graphic x appears in their place. Also, a special character is presumably used whenever two f's are written, thus "off" reads as "o?"

    There are numerous other small typos that are distracting. Is there no quality control at bn?

    Wonderful story, but I missed the pictures.

    I had read this novella many years ago with my nephew, and reading it again for our book club brought back fond memories. For first time readers, I don't recommend reading it on a black & white Nook. There were no pictures, and that is 1/2 of the story.
