Author(s): A. G. Roemmers
Even princes from faraway planets do not always remain small. Eventually they grow up and - no longer content with their tiny planet - set off once again to explore the universe anew. So the Little Prince, now a teenager, one day returns to Earth and finds himself on a lonely country road in the vast, desolate plains of Patagonia. There he meets the narrator of this novel, who rescues him and takes him on a journey. Slowly the Prince shares the stories of his adventures, and together they begin to explore some of life's most important questions, taking readers along with them on a wonderful spiritual journey. An inspiring, life-changing book.
'This book reminds us of the values we should never have abandoned: the importance of friendship, family, community and compassion - the pillars of every civilized society.' Bruno d'Agay, a member of the Saint Exupery family
