this is like a short retelling about the original The Little Prince, but with additional explanation about some values owned by each of the man he met on each planet. it's interesting, actually. I would like to read more about this.

I have always loved The Little Prince since I was a kid. It is such a beautiful story. Seeing The Journey of The Little Prince put a smile on my face. It is so beautifully illustrated. I loved that it explained the key points of the story like appearances and inner beauty to knowledge and experience. This is perfect for any child and adult who have loved the story of The Little Prince.

The Journey of The Little Prince by Corinne Delporte, illustrated by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, translated by Carine Laforest is a good retelling for the classic one. It is so addicted and I need a sequel

This is a short little children's book which is a retelling of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic novella, which is celebrating it's 80th anniversary. The Little Prince travels to different planets, and on each planet, he meets people who he finds strange, but he learns valuable lessons from meeting these people. For example, he meets a King, who gives absurd orders and only wishes to please himself. The Little Prince realises that this is not a good way to be, and that if you want to be a leader, you must be useful and responsible. He also realises at the end of the book what is really important in life.

My daughter and I enjoyed this book, which has nice graphics, but some of them were a little bit scary for my daughter. However, we really loved the messages brought forth, which were full of wisdom. I would have liked the book to be longer, as we were enjoying it so much. I would like to read more books like this in the future.

Many thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a copy of this book.

This new retelling of The Little Prince with the beautiful, classic illustrations by Saint-Exupery, is a perfect book for today. Each of the people that The Little Prince meets on his journey provide lessons on how not to live ones life. Short, simple and straightforward, children will be drawn into the images (even glow in the dark stars) while learning how to be people who do not place self first. Included are simple questions after each encounter. A beautiful gift for any child on your list and one they will refer back to as adults.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for letting me review this book. I like how the Little Prince meets several people and after each person; there are questions that are asked along with telling how each character is. I like that the questions are thought provoking.

I appreciate a kid's book that facilitates analytical thought. Asking thought-provoking questions such as “What belongings really make you happy?” makes the book more than just a fun picture book. I have no attachment to The Little Prince but I thought it was adorable and a good book to encourage critical thinking!

This story tells a shortened version of the Little Prince with prompts for reflection after the prince visits each planet. It offers analysis of the prince's journey. The illustrations are lovely and the shortened text makes it digestible and approachable for a parent or teacher to read and discuss with children. As a teacher, I envision this story being used during a morning meeting time to engage in discussion.

One of my favorite books, reimagined for a younger generation. The Journey of the Little Prince by Corinne Delporte helps teach little ones what is important in our world, and what just seems that way.

The Journey of The Little Prince is a wonderful companion to The Little Prince. The story of a Prince traveling to different planets is one that is treasured by so many, including me. The lessons one can learn from this little children's book is vast. The Journey of The Little Prince puts all those lessons together that can be read over and over again.

This adapted, shorter version of The Little Prince is a great way to begin engaging to younger readers.

The Journey of The Little Prince is a cute book. I love that it says it has stars that glow that would be seen in the book not the ebook. I am a little concerned with the small writing so can’t wait to see the actual book small writing not a problem with ebook, I like the content of the story and helps you asks questions as you are reading the book. I cannot wait to read the book with my granddaughter who will be three when the book comes out.

I absolutely loved this version of a the classic novel and cannot wait to get my hands on a copy for my library. The images are from the original, which I really liked, but it is has been rewritten as a picture book, really boiling down what can be quite a dense read into its core premise. I love the questions posed after each of the Little Prince's adventures and think this would make an excellent discussion book to use in PSHE lessons or assemblies.

If you work with children, invest in this book you will not regret it: glorious and accessible!

Who doesn’t remember the little prince? Loved the reflection after each lesson the prince learns. So relatable regardless of your age. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Review of The Journey of The Little Prince written by Corinne Delporte, illustrated by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, translated by Carine Laforest.
This short picture book summarises the journey of the Little Prince. Every major part of the original book is presented here with a great explanation for each situation. The book also includes questions for the readers!
As a fan of the original story, I am happy there is a read which explains the story to the young readers and intrigues them with questions urging them to consider the important things in life! The language is understandable for the suitable audience and the questions are relevant to the story and easy to answer.
I am giving this amazing read 5 out of 5 stars! I recommend this book to everyone, regardless of age, who just loves reading!

A lovely short read for young children along with their parents! This version of The Little Prince introduces young ones to a story that is rich in metaphor, but breaks it down into manageable small pieces, with opportunity for discussion along the way. I was impressed by the way it kept the flavour of the original tale and illustrations, yet simplified and magnified the themes for easier consumption.

#TheJourneyofTheLittlePrince #NetGalley Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review this novel. I encourage you to check this one out! Beautiful book.

This was such a cute read and a bit of walking down memory lane as when I was about 5-6 years old, I went through a stage of loving French children's books like Barbar the Elephant, Madeline, and The Little Prince. So, it has been at least 30 years since I read the children's book but I still remembered a bit about it, mainly its distinct illustrations. The Journey of the Little Prince by Corrine Delporte is not only a special book that has glow-in-the-dark stars throughout the story. The story of the Little Prince itself has just turned 80 years old - I still find it amazing that there are books that last that length of time and on the other hand it does make me sad as I think like movies, books these days don't have the same longevity like they used to have when we were children and it could be because there are more children's picture books being published daily compared to what we had ourselves 30-35 years ago. In saying that though, there are still some pretty diamonds amongst the newly released picture books. The other thing I loved about the journey of the Little Prince was that it also touched on mindfulness as our Little Prince meets a few different kings who are vain, have all the knowledge, and are greedy and the Little Prince leaves readers with a few questions to help with their journeys of personal growth at a young readers level. This book due to the story and questions can be read at different levels and is therefore suitable for children from the age of 3- 10 years old.

We had a good discussion about the things that are important for a happy life. 'befriends' was a good word to learn.

It was very reminiscent of the original and gave a little bit of that book. It also gave something to think about with each planet. And gave a conversation with my kid.

I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers.

The Journey of The Little Prince is a special edition to celebrate 80 years of this book series for children. I don't recall ever reading these as a child (I'll have to ask my mum) but I really enjoyed this book and the messages it gives to children. I can see from reading this how these books have stood the test of time - the meaning and messages given through the book are just as valid and true, if not more-so, today than ever before. This is an important book for children to have access to in my opinion and I'll definitely be looking at getting one for my granddaughter. The little prince learns so many valuable things in this book about bad qualities in people such as selfishness and self-centredness, greed, obsession, and much more. My only complaint is I wish it had been a much longer book as I as an adult enjoyed the wisdom being taught across this book!
