    "The solution goes directly to the Amazon site that has this book. The link itself is solid and does not go to some off-brand site. The book gets very good reviews from users, but the link itself goes to a used book seller. Additionally, the site offers little explanation about the book or the general contents. "

    "I don't see how this book is a problem as such. Kids and adults will like this story and it goes across generations. The author's story is interesting in its own right and is worthy of being told to older children. "

The watercolor drawings are gorgeous. My son loves trying to paint his own version of the story. Every family should own a copy of this book."

    "The Little Prince is a classic French tale of spirit and imagination. A small boy, the prince, travels to Earth to visit and explore. The prince finds many imaginative friends and scheming foes alike on his travels. The author does a great job translating the many poetic words from French to English, and the colorful watercolor images are a nice supplement to the fantastic book."

    "This is a classic book with a very serious topic, yet at the same time, it has elements of a children's book because it is a collection of drawings. As far as picture books for adults, this is an excellent choice because it does address such an important topic. When you add in the author's historical background and the French origin, you have a picture book with a big dose of culture and history. Perfect for adults!"

    "The Little Prince is a children's book with 96 pages and has been translated from the original French version of the story. It describes a journey of the little prince travelling from planet to planet where each planet has one adult living on it. It's a cute story and should be a good read for children of all ages."

    "The Little Prince is an adorable piece of literature by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. I read this in high school, and still keep a copy of this on my shelf that I read from time to time. Although I haven't heard of any children reading this book, I've seen it be recommended for children as well, and I can see why. The translation of this book is nice, and easy to read, and the stories that are told in the book give nice little life lessons that you may or may not miss on your first read through, and oddly enough, are lessons that I seem to get when I'm in need of them.

    "The Little Prince is a great book selection. As an INFJ, I love how it pokes fun at certain types of people. I also find the watercolor illustrations to be very calming and therapeutic to flip through. When I am feeling overwhelmed at the end of the day, it is great to sit down and read or even just look through the pictures. The soothing colors help me to clear my head."

    "If you are looking for any addictive page turners I would say The Little Prince is not your best bet. Yes, it is a good book but nothing that I would classify as addictive. The story line is interesting and I like the sci-fi lead into it mentioned the asteroid bringing the prince to Earth, but it isn't a book I couldn't keep down. "

    "I've been a huge fan of "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry since I was a kid and this newer translation by Richard Howard is quite good overall. There are probably some purists that will prefer the 1943 version by Katherine Woods but I honestly think that this version is just as good for the most part and even better in some cases. Even though the stories contained within this book are mostly aimed at children, I feel that they are entertaining at any age, even for a modern day hippy like me. Do yourself a favor and read this book if you've never done so before."

The story is beautiful and revolves around a boy and his sheep. It is a touching tale that I think everyone should read at least once in their life. I highly recommend this book."

    "This is a classic book, but not so much a cult classic. I remember reading it when I was pretty young, but revisiting it much later with kids of my own, I saw there was a lot more to it than a cute little story about a prince from space. If you're looking for an actual 'cult classic,' this isn't it, but you should read it anyway. "
