Moral allegory and spiritual autobiography, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the French language. With a timeless charm it tells the story of a little boy who leaves the safety of his own tiny planet to travel the universe, learning the vagaries of adult behaviour through a series of extraordinary encounters. His personal odyssey culminates in a voyage to Earth and further adventures.

A little while back, this book popped up on my facebook timeline quite regularly and everyone had amazing stuff to say about the book.
A few had read it in English and a few in French; sharing passages in the language they read it in.
Usually when I read a hyped about book, Most of the times I end up being disappointed.
But, I am so happy to say that it was not the case with this one.
From the first page the story had me in its grip. I wanted to know the story all in one and at the same time, I did not want the story to end. It was that interesting.
I’m a simple story, it tells us how we have stopped looking and caring about the small things on life. Small things that are very very important. It talks about how we are running after something we don’t even know or if we do, we don’t really want.
In short, this book is a bundle of joy.
