The Little Prince (Pop Up Book & CD)

Since it was first published in 1943 as Le Petit Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince has become one of the most popular and translated books in the world, captivating readers of all ages. This beautifully produced pop-up edition, originally appearing in 2009, adapts Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's delicate illustrations into dozens of elegant three-dimensional constructions, some of which rise up impressively out of the book. They remain integral to the story, presented here in an unabridged text translated by Richard Howard (also the translator of Stendhal, Baudelaire, Verne, and Camus). This edition includes a web address and password to download an audiobook reading of the story by Viggo Mortensen.

"While a pop-up edition of de Saint-Exupéry's enduring tale may initially seem like a gimmick, the resulting volume is a beautiful piece of bookmaking that actually extends the classic story.... This unabridged volume offers a creative, accessible entree to the timeless story."—Booklist

"The paper engineering adds a new dimension to this wistful fairy tale without overpowering it, enhancing the story's subtleties and echoing its sense of wonder."—School Library Journal
