The Little Prince is a world classic that views the whole panorama of life from a child's perspective that is to say, with innocence, perspective, sensitivity, honesty and non judgment. Just as it is a great satire on the society we adults have created, it also emphasizes the need as well as the possibility of rediscovering the child within. Not far away hidden amongst the stars, not on some tiny Asteroid with 3 volcanoes gallivanting the galaxy, the little prince lives right here, in our hearts. One sincere knock and there - he will appear before us.
