The Little Prince

Giveaway now closed et voici les résultats!  Douze points pour Rhi P and Angi Holden.  Félicitations!  Alma Books will send the books directly to you within the next few weeks…at which stage I will hopefully be gazing over the rooftops of Paris.

This year Alma Books has branched out by venturing into the realm of Children’s and YA Fiction.  Soon you will have the “pleasure”  of reading my review of  Madame Tussaud’s Apprentice, one of the frontrunners in the YA stable but, to keep you going in the meantime, I am delighted to give my UK readers the opportunity to win a copy of a new translation of The Little Prince.  Targeted at ages 7-11, this edition will appeal to dreamers of all ages…if I could I would enter!

So allons-y with le nitty gritty ( I can actually speak French, as some of you know..)

Having crash-landed in the Sahara desert, a pilot comes across a young boy who introduces himself as the “Little Prince” and tells him the story of how he grew up on a tiny asteroid before travelling across the galaxies and coming to Earth. His encounters and discoveries, seen through childlike, innocent eyes, give rise to candid reflections on life and human nature.First published in 1943 and featuring the author’s own watercolour illustrations, The Little Prince has since become a classic philosophical fable for young and old, as well as a global publishing phenomenon, selling tens of millions of copies worldwide and being translated into dozens of languages.
