Editorial Reviews

Criticas
Gr 5-8-This ageless classic presents readers with a number of adult-world absurdities via a child's planet-hopping adventure. Through the words of an omniscient narrator, the Little Prince recalls a number of puzzling encounters with adults. On the first planet, the Little Prince meets a king in such dire need of loyalty that he only gives orders he knows will be followed. On another planet, he describes a businessman who constantly counts the stars, which he proudly claims as his, since they belong to no one else. Later, he meets a geographer who is much too important to leave his office and relies on explorers to describe the world to him. By recounting his adventures to our narrator, the Little Prince attempts to highlight the importance of the moment and finding beauty in nature. Thoughtful readers will appreciate the story's messages and will reflect on life while reading it. The author's original ink and watercolor sketches are carefully placed throughout, providing support for struggling readers. The translated text is true to the original and very readable. This gem should be in every bookstore, public library, and middle school collection.

Read an Excerpt

"A Leon Werth.

Pido perdón a los niños por haber dedicado este libro a una persona mayor.
Tengo una seria excusa: esta persona mayor es el mejor amigo que tengo en el mundo.
Tengo otra excusa: esta persona mayor puede comprender todo; hasta los libros de niños.
Tengo una tercera excusa esta persona mayor vive en Francia, donde tiene hambre y frío. Tiene verdadera necesidad de consuelo.
Si todas estas excusas no fueran suficientes, quiero dedicar este libro al niño que esta persona mayor fue en otro tiempo. Todas las personas mayores han sido niños antes. (Pero pocas lo recuerdan).
Corrijo pues mi dedicatoria: A Leon Werth cuando era niño.

Este es, para mí, el más bello y triste paisaje del mundo. Es el mismo paisaje de la página precedente, pero lo ha dibujado una vez más para mostrárolos bien. Aquí fue donde el principito apareció en la Tierra, y luego desapareció. Mirad atentamente este paisaje a fin de estar seguros de que habréis de reconocerlo, si viajáis un día por el Africa, en el desierto. Y si llegáis a pasar por allí, os suplico: no os apresuréis; esperad un momento exactamente debajo de la estrella. Si entonces un niño llega hacia vosotros, si ríe, si tiene cabellos de oro, si no responde cuando se le interroga, adivinaréis quien es. ¡Sed amables entonces! No me dejéis tan triste. Escribidme enseguida, decidme que el principito ha vuelto...

"Viví así, solo, sin nadie con quien hablar verdaderamente, hasta que tuve una avería en el desierto del Sahara, hace seis años. Algo se había roto en mi motor. Y como no tenía conmigo ni mecánico ni pasajeros, me dispuse a realizar, solo, una reparación difícil. Era, para mí, cuestión de vida o muerte. Tenía agua apenas para ocho días.

La primera noche dormí sobre la arena a mil millas de toda tierra habitada. Estaba más aislado que un náufrago sobre una balsa en medio del océano. Imaginaos, pues, mi sorpresa cuando, al romper el día, me despertó una extraña vocecita que decía:
---Por favor..., ¡dibújame un cordero!"

    Buen libro!

    Este libro es muy educativo y facil de leer. Realmente muestra dos mundos el de los niños natural, y el de los adultos sintetico. Se puede aprender mucho y ademas es un misterio si el personaje era real o no...como decia el mismo "Nunca se sabe..."

    This a good book for middle school kids. Most important of this book is that help kids to reflect about human attitudes towards society. The story is very original.

    Un libro para unos pocos adultos privilegiados

    El Principito no es un libro para niños, aunque así lo parezca a primera vista. Se trata de una narración profundamente simbólica, en la cual un pequeño extraterrestre logra que los lectores de alta sensibilidad descifren los detalles de las andanzas de este personaje tratando de salvar del peligro a una rosa que conserva en un asteroide.. De este modo se revela la variada idiosincracia de los seres humanos, destacándose aquéllos más complejos e incomprendidos, como los que saben distinguir el dibujo de un sombrero del de una boa tragándose un elefante. ¿Qué siginifica la rosa? ¿Qué quiere decir domesticar? El lector más avezado logrará entender porqué algunos necesitan exponerse en determinado momento a la mordedura mortal de una serpiente...
