The Little Prince


by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

The Little Prince is written in very simple language. It’s a slim book with little text, and has illustrations that liven it up. All in all, a quick, fun read.

Even though it certainly looks like a children’s book, The Little Prince is satisfying reading for adults as well because it speaks about issues that are relevant to readers of all ages: love, friendship, trust. Yep, all those big words in one little book!
