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!
